Camp CARE is committed to providing a normal childhood camping experience to children who have or have had cancer

Camp CARE is committed to providing a camp, and other year round activities for children, ages 3-16, who have or have had cancer, and their families in the Charlotte, NC area.

The philosophy of Camp CARE from the beginning has been that a child with cancer is, first of all, a child. A child, like all children, needs laughter, friends and fresh air. These are the very things Camp CARE can provide.

Camp CARE is a non-profit organization which relies entirely on volunteer support and donations.

Camp CARE hopes to:

  • Recognize that a child with cancer is first of all a child, who like all children, needs laughter, friends, and fresh air
  • Provide a summer camp experience, at no cost to the family, for children with cancer, supervised by a trained volunteer staff, including medical personnel
  • Provide opportunities for families of children with cancer to interact and develop coping skills
  • Increase awareness in the community of the needs of children with cancer
