Camp One Step

We are excited to launch our new series of programming called Camp One Step CONNECTED. It is our digital programming that allows us to serve children with cancer and their families, no matter where they are in treatment or the world. Traditionally, it has been the focus of our mission to "bring more kids to camp". With our digital platform, we are now able to "bring camp to more kids".

However, we need YOUR help to accomplish this. We are looking for volunteers that have a desire to make a positive impact in the lives of children diagnosed with cancer and their families. You could be part of a pioneer team that will shape and mold this frontier. One of the best parts is that you can do this from the comfort and safety of your home, workplace, etc... If selected to volunteer, we will send you all of the materials that you need to participate in the program, and bring smiles and joy to our campers and their families,

Are you ready to discover why camp is not just a place, but rather a community? if you are, please do not hesitate to contact us, as we would be excited to connect with you.

Description

Dr. Edward Baum, a pediatric oncologist at Children's Memorial Hospital in Chicago, founded Children's Oncology Services, Inc., in 1978. Dr. Baum recognized that the isolation from school, activities and peers was having negative social and developmental consequences for his patients. With the help of friends and colleagues, Dr. Baum created COSI. The first summer, he and 14 volunteers welcomed 40 children with cancer to a life-changing week of hope, strength and support.

Today, COS continues to be volunteer-driven, relying on more than 350 volunteers (including many former campers), an active Board of Directors and a four-person professional staff to plan and operate a wide portfolio of camping, recreational and educational programs for children and adolescents diagnosed with cancer. From the popular two-week Summer Camp, which now serves nearly 300 children, to skiing excursions and education programs, COS is a leader in providing empowering and fun experiences to young people facing cancer
