2023 Family Camp!

Welcome to Family Camp 2023!

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. Each session includes some family activity time as well as designated times for parents and kids to meet separately for some targeted peer support.

If you have any questions please contact the Okizu office at 415-382-9083 or email enrollment@okizu.org.

2023 Family Camp Dates and Locations

We are offering seven sessions of Family Camp this year to be held at four different locations throughout Northern California. There is a lot of information to sort through, so please feel free to contact the Okizu office with questions.

During Family Camp, each family will stay in their own cabin or room. Most of the sites have shared restroom and shower facilities but families won’t have to share cabin space.

A few of the rental sites allow for tent camping so if you prefer that please make a note in the comment section below.

We hope to see you at an Okizu program this year!

If you have any questions please contact the Okizu office at 415-382-9083 or email enrollment@okizu.org.

COVID-19 Info (Updated 08/2022)

We are working with our medical advisory committee to create clear safety guidelines to bring us together in person once again. At this time, Okizu is requiring all individuals attending an in-person session of camp to be vaccinated against COVID-19. All attendees must be up-to-date on their COVID-19 vaccines per CDC guidelines for their age group. Children who fall below the CDC approved age range for vaccinations are exempt. 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 in-person 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 outdoors when outside of designated cohorts.

**** 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.*****
