At CCK we want every child to feel special. Our volunteers and staff strive to create a place that is not only medically safe, but a place where campers are given the opportunity to take part in an all-inclusive FUN camp experience. This week, we saw our Asthma campers making memories that they will take with them long after they leave CCK.

We couldn't wrap up the week without doing a very special shout out to our friend, the amazingly talented, Kyle Daniel for coming and sharing your love for music with our campers. Until next time, Asthma Campers! It's been a blast!

At CCK we are all about fun adventures! One of our many outdoor activities is paddle boating, kayaking, canoeing, and fishing in our lake! We would like to thank the Bass Pro Shops and Cabela’s Outdoor Fund for supporting CCK’s Boat and Water Safety Program. Through their support CCK is educating our campers on proper water safety as well as being able to purchase kayaks, flotation vests, and canoes for our lake activities! It is because of generous supporters like the Bass Pro Shops and Cabela’s Outdoor Fund that we are able to continue offering new and safe camp programs. ... See MoreSee Less
