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.


Join Us for Camptoberfest!

A fun virtual night of fun for adults and children!

The adult’s event will be held from 6 – 8pm. This will include a German cooking class from Himmels Chicago, wine tasting through Wilmette Wine Cellar, and a raffle. You will be provided with an ingredient list to purchase prior to the event, and depending on where you live, wine can be picked up or sent to your home depending on your location (a small delivery fee may apply and if you’re out of state local laws apply so please call us to confirm).

The children’s event will be from 6 – 7:30 pm and is available for free for our current campers or with an adult event ticket purchased. This will include pumpkin decorating, a fun edible craft, and a time to catch up with friends or meet new friends! You will be provided with a shopping list of items you will need for the event.

Updates will be posted on the Facebook Event Page.

While no Pediatric Oncology Camps took place in person this summer, Camp Kids Are Kids Chicago pivoted with their first “The Camp Show Must Go On!” virtual program which was a huge success! Since we had to cancel all in person events, we couldn’t do our typical fundraisers either. Help us to continue to offer our families the camp experience they need with our first virtual raffle where you can win incredible prizes. The Making Virtual Dreams Come True drawing will happen on Thursday, October 22nd. The Cost for the Raffle Tickets is 1 for $150, 2 for $200, 5 tickets for $400, and 10 tickets for $750.


A $3,000 landscaping experience with one of the premier landscaping companies in the North Shore, Root and Stem. This credit can be used for a landscaping or hardscaping project. (Depending on location, we will work with the winner.)

A Custom Dinner for 10 Guests at RPM Italian or an RPM at Home Dinner from RPM Italian (with a chef included). A dynamic, custom multi-course menu prepared for you by a collaboration between the chef team and beverage team with wine pairings.

A $1,500 gift certificate to Dana Rebecca Designs, a female-owned small business that believes you don’t need to pick between high quality and attainable prices. With the holidays coming up this will be perfect for that special someone.

A two-night stay at Lincoln Park’s The Neighborhood Hotel in a large one-bedroom suite, which includes a queen sleeper sofa, breakfast at Frances Deli and late-night food from the Wieners Circle. We will all need a staycation once things return back to the norm.
