Mission Statement

The mission of Camp Boggy Creek is to foster a spirit of joy by creating a free, safe and medically-sound camp environment that enriches the lives of children with serious illnesses and their families.

Description

Camp Boggy Creek is a year round medical camping facility for children, ages 7-16, who have chronic or serious illnesses. We are part of the SeriousFun Children's Network, founded by the late actor Paul Newman. We serve over 13 different illness groups including heart disease, HIV, sickle cell anemia, and cancer. The children who come to our camp come absolutely free of charge along with our volunteers. We are a not-for-profit organization, which depends entirely on the monetary generosity of others, as well as on the volunteer man-power to help make this experience happen for these children.

Our programs allow our kids to experience fun, adventure, and independence: catching their first fish, shooting a bow and arrow, or climbing the "tower" while helping them to create some incredible memories and friendships that will last a lifetime.
