2024 Oncology Camp are Open!


Welcome to Okizu’s Oncology Camp program.

When a child is diagnosed with cancer, the lives of the patient and the entire family are changed forever. At camp, Okizu offers an atmosphere conducive to nurturing self-esteem and building self-reliance while maintaining the most important aspect of camp: an experience that is fun for the campers. While at camp, children experience being part of a close-knit group of friends; together they enjoy the challenges and excitement of outdoor activities, with a group of peers who truly understand their situation.

This year we are excited to offer both in-person and virtual programs. We will be holding two one-week sessions of Oncology camp and one session of virtual Oncology camp.


  • Oncology Camp session 1: June 10 – 14 @ Camp Arroyo (Livermore, CA) TRACK 1
  • Oncology Camp session 2: July 8 – 13 @ Camp Taylor (Modesto, CA) TRACK 2

Registration will close two weeks before the start date of each program.

Children are eligible if they:

  • Have or have had cancer
  • Receive approval from their physician
  • Are age 8-17 at the time of camp
  • Have consent of a parent or legal guardian
  • Complete the application process
  • Live-in or were treated in Northern California/Nevada


To preserve Okizu’s focus on creating safe environments for our most vulnerable campers, while also providing our program to as many folks are possible, we are creating a two-track model for the 2024 camp season:

• Track 1: COVID vaccinations are not required but highly recommended.

• Track 2: Up to date COVID vaccinations* are required. Track 2 requires proof of COVID-19 vaccination given on or after September 12, 2023. This applies to all campers and staff choosing to attend those sessions.

Okizu has designated one session of each program (Family Camp, Oncology Camp, and SIBS Camp) as Track 2 and these sessions will require proof of COVID-19 vaccinations given on or after September 12, 2023.
