Welcome to Okizu!
For 40 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.
We offer a variety of medically supervised residential camping programs throughout the year and hope that we have a program that’s right for you. All of our programs are free of charge.
We invite you to learn more about our programs, and hope you will use this section as a starting place to get to know us and to join the Okizu family.
“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
