Summer Adventure Camp

The Kids of Courage Summer Adventure Camp is a dream come true. Every day many sick kids dream about a chance to disconnect from their daily struggles. They want to experience freedom and adventure like every child. It seems like an impossible dream, because many of them cannot travel without special medical supervision or without oxygen or special equipment.

We listened to their dreams, and turned it into reality. Welcome to our Summer Adventure Camp. Welcome to the world of impossible dreams for those who need it most.

 

 

Our Dream... Some facts...

Summer 2014

After amazing camps in Los Angeles, Orlando and San Franciso we're planning something even more amazing for 2014. This year's adventure will be better and more spectacular than ever, as we're bringing a record number of new campers on our trip. Our schedule is one of the most closely guarded secrets, so we can't give you any details, but it will be full of surprises! Visit our website, Twitter and Facebook to follow us during the trip. Or even better: join us!

This year's trip will depart on August 13th, 2014

 

Medical Care

Our state-of-the-art mobile hospital and experienced medical staff is there to answer the medical needs of every camper while away from home, even for campers with the most complicated conditions. The medical staff has many years of experience in a camp setting, like the superb logistical team, while counselors undergo rigorous medical training before being assigned to a camper.
 

Family

Kids of Courage cares about the entire family, not just about the sick child. These familes care for their sons, daughters, brothers and sisters every day without rest. This camp gives them an opportunity to relax and recuperate from the physically and emotionally exhausting lifestyles they lead.
