Okizu is celebrating 40 years!
Since 1982, thousands of children with cancer have experienced the joy of summer camp at Camp Okizu and we will continue the tradition virtually in 2021. While online programming will look a little different, we are excited to bring the fun and adventure of Okizu into your home this summer.
All pediatric oncology patients ages 6-17 are welcome to join us for one of our online summer camp sessions. We will hold two 3-day sessions of camp open to all participants and one 2-day session for teens ages 13-17. Teens are welcome to participate in both the general and the teen session. Each session of camp will be full of fun activities as well as offer time with an online cabin group getting to know each other and building friendships. There will be breaks built into each day and campers are welcome to pick and choose which activities they want to participate in….but they’ll be having so much fun they’ll want to do them all!
This year everyone will receive a Happy Camper Kit which will be mailed about a week before the start of the session. Each kit will include the items you need to participate in camp, this year’s camp t-shirt, and some fun swag items.
There is no charge to participate in Oncology Camp. The camping experiences are made possible through the financial support of foundations, community organizations and individuals. We fundraise throughout the year to make these camping experiences possible, and all help is welcome. Click here for more information about making a donation.
Children are eligible for Oncology Camp if they:
- Have or have had cancer.
- Are 6-17 years of age at the time of camp.
