2024 Family Camp dates coming soon!

Welcome to Family Camp 2024!

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.

2024 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.
