Camp Courage An awesome day for awesome kids

“You should go because you know you're not alone.”

Every year, Cancer Family Care organizes Camp Courage, a one-day camp experience for children between the ages of 5 to 14 who have been impacted by a cancer diagnosis in the family or by a loss due to cancer. Camp Courage is also open to childhood cancer survivors.

Campers are divided into groups according to age and participate in a variety of therapeutic activities throughout the day. Older children can also participate in a high ropes course experience.

Cancer Family Care's main office provides transportation to and from Camp Joy.

Will your child be riding the bus from our main office in Mt. Auburn? 

You will be required to sign release/waiver forms in order for your child to participate in Camp Courage. Please download the required release form, waiver form and the optional food service form and bring them when dropping off your child. If someone else will be dropping off your child, please make arrangements with them to bring the forms. If you cannot print the attached forms and bring them, they will be available upon drop-off.

Camp Courage is staffed by camp counseling professionals and volunteers. All adults participating have undergone background checks for your child's safety. If your child needs individual care during the day, please contact Holly Eary at Cancer Family Care at 513-731-3346, extension 113, or heary@cancerfamilycare.org to discuss your child's special needs. Depending on the severity of your child's needs, we may or may not be able to serve your child. Parents/guardians are not permitted to accompany their child throughout the day.

“It's a nice place to go to express your feelings about cancer.”
It was awesome.
“It helps you understand cancer.”
