Mission Statement

Camp Casco creates amazing camp experiences that build lifelong connections for children with cancer and their families.

Description

Camp Casco builds community for childhood cancer patients, survivors, and families in New England through amazing camp experiences. We create a space for kids to reclaim their childhood- to laugh and play. All of our campers have been affected by childhood cancer, and this unifying environment is liberating. At camp, cancer instantly becomes the least remarkable thing about you - a welcome relief for those who have felt defined by this label in everyday life.

Research shows that summer camps for children with cancer reduce disease-related anxiety, improve self-image, increase independence, build social skills, and ultimately improve psychosocial outcomes. We provide these benefits to New England kids free-of-cost, giving patients, survivors, and siblings the chance to make lasting memories and build lifelong friendships.
