Volunteer & Counselor in Training Resources

There are a great many sources regarding all aspects of Pediatric Oncology Camping... everything from Oncology Research to Family and Sibling Support.

The mission of COCA-I  is to strengthen the international community of camps for children with cancer and their families through networking, advocacy, and education. In that vein, the list below represents some resources regarding the many facets of the physical, psychological, familial, and social implications of children with cancer.

Our resources are divided into the following areas:

COCA-I has assembled Camper packets, forms, agreements used either presently or in the past by our members. These may be helpful reference materials. Be aware that some are dated and may have been superceded. These are merely for reference only and to acquaint Campers and Families with some of the various ways COCA-I camps work with Campers.

COCA-I Research

Children with cancer, their siblings, and families all benefit in dramatic ways to the pediatric oncology camping experience. COCA-I is very fortunate to be able to count among active members many oncology camping experts, pediatric oncolology physicians, and leaders in the field of researching the benefits of oncology camps.

COCA-I has been fortunate enough to provide support for this valulable research.
