To our valued families, volunteers and CCK friends:
Due to recent circumstances involving the Covid-19 Delta variant it has become
more challenging to provide a safe environment for our children, families,
volunteers, and staff.
It is with great disappointment that we are sharing with you our intent to delay
the family retreat sessions for fall 2021.
As pioneers of medical camping for children, we are committed to creating a
residential camping experience at the highest standard that we and our
participants expect. CCK’s executive leadership and healthcare experts have
determined that now is the time to be vigilant.
The Center for Courageous Kids will continue to thrive and be better than ever.
We firmly believe this will be the case when regularly scheduled programming
Stay safe and well,
JOIN CCK'S MISSION

OUR 100% PROMISE
100% of all donations goes directly to help campers and families attend CCK.
Because of our generous supporters, our camper families have
NO COST. NO WORRIES. JUST FUN.
FAMILIES PAY $0.00
Because of your support, CCK has served over 36,000 children with serious illnesses and special needs and their families from around the world at NO COST to them.
Partners like you inspire families during weekend retreats where the entire family comes together and experiences a weekend of recreation and respite at no cost. This bonding experience provides a support system throughout the year.
In a world where these children are often told they cannot, at CCK they can. Our campers enjoy every activity and event with no limitations or restrictions because the camping facility is fully accessible.
Your generosity helps CCK design a camp experience that provides children inspiring activities that enhance their lives by giving them the chance to develop new skills and increase self-esteem with the guidance and encouragement from our expert program staff.
When you support CCK, you provide 24-hour supervision by experienced medical specialists so campers can laugh and play safely under the watchful eye of doctors, nurses and therapists who are experienced in their diagnosis. At CCK, children have the opportunity to take a break from their daily medical challenges and focus on enjoying camp!
During CCK’s summer camp sessions, children have the opportunity to meet a community of peers living with the same medical condition. The relationships made with other children who understand their daily struggles and challenges provide a sense of comfort and hope in knowing they are not alone.
CCK also supports the parents of these courageous campers. As their child is enjoying a medically safe camping experience, parents can take this opportunity to reconnect and focus their attention on each other.
