Our Medical Team will continue to closely monitor the COVID-19 situation and will work on the necessary precautions to operate in person again when it is safe to do so. The “silver lining” to this COVID cloud is our ability to serve more families who wouldn’t have been able to attend camp in person. Here’s how we continue to grow through virtual programming.
A FREE URBAN CAMP FOR KIDS AND SIBLINGS IMAPACTED BY CANCER
“Camp Kids are Kids Chicago was THE perfect break for me. I got to spend a week with new fiends, all which know very well what I am going through. . . . The week was absolutely perfect. I completely forgot I had cancer.”
“My favorite thing about interacting with other campers was that the other kids are all living with similar problems as me, so for once not being ‘normal’ felt normal all week.”
“Camps like these are so important for kids like me because it helped me to remember I’m not alone in this struggle, and we can still have fun and be happy.”
“Camp Kids Are Kids Chicago is an amazing place. There you don’t realize that you are going through bad times. And the best part about it was just not thinking about chemotherapy or doctors or needles, all you had to worry about there was what are we doing next.”
Camp Kids Are Kids Chicago is an urban camp for kids and their siblings living with and beyond cancer. It is a unique fun dynamic environment where children can just be kids and forget their diagnosis. Full medical support and trained medical professionals are onsite for the duration of the camp.
