MANALAPAN, NJ - We are about making a difference in a child’s life. We are a 501 c3 tax exempt, volunteer driven organization providing year round programs for kids with cancer with a focus on improving the quality of life. Our programs are designed to foster the building of life skills, emotional strength, and new friendships in a stress free, fun environment. These programs are offered at no cost to the families of kids with cancer.
How do we do it?
The companion to camper program is the heart of our program. Each camper is paired with an adult companion (18 years or older) who spends the entire week at camp by his/her campers side. As a camper's friend, cheerleader, and mentor even beyond camp, companions gain the trust of their camper and are positioned to encourage their camper to try new fun activities and challenges that allow them to leave their "Comfort Zone" in an attempt to build emotional strength and life skills.
- The overnight campground is an ideal venue to bring our campers and companions together to share fun and exciting experiences where campers have the opportunity to build relationships, emotional strength, life skills and memories to sustain them in the years ahead.
- Unlike other camping programs, each of our fun activities at camp are carefully selected to ensure that the activity builds life skills, encourages group interaction amongst campers and companions, and/or offers a high impact lasting memory.
