KiDS NEED MoRE Camp Adventure is a week-long, sleep-away camp for children coping with cancer. Children ages 6 - 18 both on & off treatment, siblings and bereaved siblings are eligible. Camp Adventure was established in 1990.

Teens ages 17 & 18 and young adults are eligible to participate in a year-long internship and leadership programs. Our year-round programming and events supports children and families coping with serious illness and trauma.

KiDS NEED MoRE offers a Day Camp experience in July for families coping with serious illness and trauma. This 3-week long program offers horseback riding, small and large animal activities, STEM, sports and everything you would expect to see at our fabulous Saddle Rock Ranch. The camp is open to children ages 4 and up, however, we do not leave out our teens! In fact, sometimes we think they are having all the fun.

As a fairly new organization picking up an 'old mission' of caring for children with cancer and their families we are set back by start-up costs. We are hosting our forth year of MoRE Camp Adventure since 2014 and are looking forward to many years in the future; we are always looking for assistance with:

*Promotional Materials -getting printed (Take-aways for the kids like sweatshirts, towels, backpacks, etc)
*Training Sessions
*Securing Golf-Carts
*Unique Entertainment
