Camp Hobe' is a special psychosocial support program for kids being treated for cancer (and similarly-treated disorders) and their families. Our mission is to create an atmosphere that enhances self-esteem, fosters independence and friendships, and offers a sense of belonging. Participants have the freedom at our programs to “just be kids” for a time and to stretch their limits physically, mentally, and socially; as well as to meet others facing similar experiences.

We were founded in 1985, offering a single summer camp session for 15 kids. Over the years, we've grown to almost 300 campers at 3 sessions each summer. We currently offer three summer camp sessions, including a 5-day overnight for ages 7-11 years (Kids Week), a 5-day overnight for ages 12-19 years (Teen Week), and a 2-day program for ages 4-6+ years (Day Camp/Hobe' Juniors). The 2-day program is a hybrid session, providing a day camp for ages 4-6+ years and an optional overnight component for ages 6+ years.

In addition to our summer camps, we offer 2-4 free family outings during the rest of the year. These events vary from sporting events to movie premieres or carnivals. Our family outings serve an additional 250-300 people each year.
