Children with a seriously ill parent have it rough. They deal with the realities of disease on a daily basis.They live with a constant fear of Mommy or Daddy leaving them. They need to act like adults in helping their parents cope. These children need the break that summer camp provides, and the chance to laugh, run and play like "normal" children. Their parent's catastrophic illness and the resulting financial distress leaves families unable to afford summer camp, just when it is needed most.

Camp4ever! is their relief. Hundreds of children who have a sick mother or father are given a camp experience to remember. Days packed with excitement and nights full of support and camaraderie create a magical atmosphere in a warm and accepting environment. Our hand-picked and carefully trained staff encourage children to talk about their concerns and give them the security to take crucial steps towards confidence and inner strength.
