The Center for Courageous Kids

INSPIRES
Children with Serious Illnesses

SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT:

We’re back! On July 9, 2021, The Center for Courageous Kids will open our gates to in-person programming once again. The decision to invite guests to stay on-site is driven by the active dedication of our staff, reliable medical advice, and the careful consideration of our executive board.

We are serious about prioritizing the health and safety of everyone involved with the return to in-person camp sessions. Significant changes have been made to ensure we do just that! We are working closely with our loyal Healthcare Partners to recruit families and campers in order to maintain an appropriate number of attendees.

We give thanks to everyone for understanding why open-enrollment has been suspended for now. The Center for Courageous Kids is focused on a future where we can operate at full capacity this fall, offering all of the joy that camp has to give very soon!

give the gift of camp
inspire families

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.

empower kids
enhance lives

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!

provide care
give community

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.
