Summer Adventure Camp
The Kids of Courage Summer Adventure Camp is a dream come true. Every day, sick children across the world dream about a chance to disconnect from their daily struggles, where they can experience freedom and adventure like every child. To many people, it seems like an impossible dream; to Kids of Courage, it is a reality.
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.
