ONE BIG ROUND OF APPLAUSE PLEASE! CCK is proud to spotlight the following organizations and groups as our Healthcare Partners for the 2020 Spring Retreat Season. The support and dedication we receive from these partners help us serve more families with great programs. As like-minded services, these organizations and groups care about the children and families we serve and the unique diagnoses they experience. All of them are non-profit organizations too! They work hard to not only spread the word about CCK for recruitment and also support a portion of the financial cost CCK incurs to facilitate camp sessions. Thank you, Healthcare Partners, for your generous commitment to our 2020 Spring Season!
