A special camp for kids being treated for cancer (and disorders treated similarly to cancer) and their siblings. Our mission is to create an atmosphere that enhances self-esteem, fosters independence and friendships, and offers a sense of belonging. Kids are given the freedom at camp to “just be kids” for a time and to stretch their limits physically, mentally, and socially.

Established in 1985, the program has grown from 15 campers the first year to almost 300 campers each summer. We offer two 5-day overnight sessions: one for kids (ages 7-11 years) and one for teens (ages 12-19 years). We also offer a 2-day Day Camp / Hobe' Juniors for kids ages 4-6+ years; the 4- and 5-year olds do not stay overnight while the 6-year olds may experience a 1-night overnight as Hobe' Juniors.
