Welcome to Okizu!

For 41 years Camp Okizu has offered support programs to families who have a child diagnosed with cancer. Camp Okizu has become a second family and a home away from home for thousands of patients, siblings, and parents.

While we typically offer a variety of medically supervised residential camping programs throughout the year, we pivoted to online programming in 2020 and are currently planning to hold programs in person and virtually in 2022.

2022 applications are now available!

“Going through this feels like we’ve been in a war zone and this is a place of joy, peace, and tranquility. It’s very healing to be in a beautiful setting and to play again. We spend so much time in the hospital and this is the antidote. It helps us relearn how to relax and be a family.” — Okizu Parent

Family Camp

Family Camp is a chance for the patient, siblings, and parents to come together with other families who are coping with the challenges of navigating the pediatric cancer world. This year we will offer five in-person Family Camp sessions, two in the spring and one in the fall. Each session will include some family activity time as well as designated times for parents and kids to meet separately for some targeted peer support.
