Image_202112020907

Camp One Step is excited to offer online and offline activities through our CONNECTED programs and events. CONNECTED reaches campers and families who may not be able to attend an in-person program at this time. All Camp One Step Programs are free for all campers and families to attend, and CONNECTED offers on-demand activities, single or multi-session programs, and educational sessions.

We need YOUR help to accomplish this. We are looking for volunteers, 21 years or older, 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 of digital camp programming. One of the best parts is that you can do this from the comfort and safety of your home, workplace, car, etc.

Are you ready to discover why camp is not just a place, it's a community? If so, please do not hesitate to contact us, as we would be excited to connect with you.

About Camp One Step

Location:

213 W Institute Place, Suite 410, Chicago, IL 60610, US

Mission Statement

Through the magic of camp, we help kids diagnosed with cancer reclaim their lives. Our programs offer participants a diversion from their illness, opportunities for the development of life skills, friendship, and unconditional acceptance from those who understand.

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 isolation from school, activities, and peers had 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, COSI continues to be volunteer-driven, relying on more than 400 volunteers (including many former campers), an active Board of Directors and a small 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, COSI is a leader in providing empowering and fun experiences to young people facing cancer.
