Kids and Parents Corner

"At Camp4ever! I made friends who get it. I had such a fun summer and can't wait to go back." – Ahuva, age 12

"Camp had the best trips and the awesomest counselors." – Dovi, age 8

"It was such a pleasure to know that our kids were having fun in a warm and loving environment where other children and their counselors understand what they are going through. During the year, our kids are all alone, dealing with their dad's cancer. But now they have the summer to look forward to." – Deena, Camp4ever! parent
