Care Camps

Many of us have been touched by cancer, unfortunately. We might not have had it ourselves, but have a child, sibling, family member or friend who has been afflicted with this terrible disease. KCN is on a mission to help cancer patients, specifically kids, through the cancer treatment process. We run a number of fundraisers and activities across our properties to raise both awareness and money for Care Camps. This means that we’re raising money to send kids with cancer to a special camp where they can enjoy needed medical support but as importantly they can be kids and have a kids summer camp experience despite their disease. Fishing, crafts, activities, canoeing, ropes courses and more – all the things a kid should be able to do at summer camp!

Care Camps provide a much-needed experience for kids with cancer, where they can live as normal kids for a week and enjoy the adventures of being at a summer camp. They can do this without the complications of their individual conditions, instead being surrounded by amazing nature and the support of a community of caregivers and other kids facing similar challenges. We support Care Camps through the planful inclusion of Care Camps into the KCN DNA of how we run our parks, and contribute to this important cause. Ways we fundraise every day at our parks include:

  • Weekly pancake breakfast fundraisers
  • Weekly ice cream social fundraisers
  • Ongoing hosted scavenger hunt fundraisers 
  • Proactive donation requests during reservation booking and guest check-in interactions

“KCN’s support for Care Camps is making a tremendous difference with our mission to fund medically supervised pediatric oncology camps across the United States and Canada. Their philanthropic commitment and service ensures that more children and families can experience the healing power of community and the outdoors. We are incredibly grateful for our partnership with KCN.” – Gwynn B. Sullivan, MSN, Executive Director, Care Camps
