Recognizing that childhood cancer affects the entire family, Okizu provides a camp for the siblings of children with cancer. SIBS (Special and Important Brothers and Sisters) Camp gives these children the opportunity to discover that they are not the only ones coping with the difficulties that accompany having a sibling with cancer.
SIBS age 6-17 are welcome to join us this summer for one of our online summer camp sessions. We will hold three 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 send your child to SIBS 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 to apply for SIBS Camp if they:
- Have a brother or sister who has, has had, or has died from cancer.
- Are 6-17 years of age at the time of camp.
- Complete the application process.
