Summer camp consists of 5 week-long sessions, two for Oncology patients and three for Special and Important Brothers and Sisters (SIBS). Both camps provide tons of fun for pediatric oncology patients and their siblings through separate programs.

COVID-19 (Updated 04/05/2023)

Our medical team works hard every year to make camp as safe as possible for all our campers and our volunteers. They will continue to monitor current public health issues and we will update our safety protocols as is appropriate. At this time, Okizu is requiring all individuals attending an in-person session of camp be vaccinated against COVID-19, which includes an original two-dose series and a bi-valent booster.

If you would like more information, please call the Okizu office or email heather@okizu.org. You can also visit the CDC website at https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/vaccines/recommendations/specific-groups.html

Testing for COVID-19 will be expected to attend an in-person overnight program. At this time, our Medical Advisory Committee has stated it is too far in advance to determine the testing algorithm based on current infection rate. We will provide more information on testing requirements as we get closer to the in-person camp sessions.

Masks will be required for all campers and volunteer staff attending in-person programs while indoors, and when in close proximity.

**** All information presented above is subject to change with advice from our Medical Advisory Committee as the climate of COVID-19 is constantly changing. Okizu always prioritizes the safety of our campers and staff and we will continue to do so moving forward.*****

If you would like to receive additional information about Okizu, please call the office at 415.382.9083, or email enrollment@okizu.org.
