To Foster Joy in a Fun, Safe, and Medically Sound Urban, Recreational Environment that Builds Self-Esteem, Independence, and Friendships for Children Living with Cancer.
Camp Kids Are Kids Chicago (CKAKC), a nonprofit organization started in 2013 with its inaugural camp in August 2014, is a camp for kids living with cancer in a fun, safe and medically sound urban recreational environment and with no financial cost to campers families.
Camp Kids Are Kids Chicago 2019 will be Sunday, August 11 - August 16 at the Palmer House, a Hilton Hotel, with suites converted into bunk cabins to simulate a campground.
We are happy to say that Camp Kids Are Kids Chicago first five years have been huge successes and incredible fun for our campers, where they learned life-skills, team building, coping mechanisms and found support, acceptance and friendships which extend into their everyday lives. We look forward to CKAKC 2019 and we invite you to join us in this phenomenal event for kids with cancer.
