Detailed Information

Camp Casco is a one-week summer camp experience for children with cancer. The day camp welcomes kids aged 5-10 and the overnight camp is designed for kids aged 7-17. Casco aims to restore the fun of summer with traditional camp activities, free of cost. Kids are encouraged to be silly and adventurous in a safe and welcoming environment. Family socials are hosted throughout the year to provide continued support and keep that camp feeling going.

Activities are one-of-a-kind theme-based programs that give each child a special camp experience every time they attend. All activities, from outdoor creative play and daily swim to dress-up and water balloons, are thoughtfully planned to encourage peer relationship-building and positive, supportive interactions.
