Camp Outside the Box

The world has gone a little sideways and we know that nothing can replace the experience of family camp...but we've been dreaming and working outside of the box, and we're excited to announce Candlelighters Family Camp 2020: Camp Outside the Box! What is it? Families will embark on a photo scavenger hunt to solve clues and challenges, from home, while connecting with other families throughout the day on camp-themed fun! Phew, that's a lot, but it's not even the half of it...prizes, contests, T-shirts.

This is inclusive, state and chapter-wide event happening on August 22nd. Registration is now closed, but if you have registered, look for more details to come. If you have questions, please contact

About Candlelighters Family Camp:
Every year since 1995 during Labor Day weekend, we have hosted Candlelighters Family Camp for Candlelighters family members in Eugene, OR. It is an incredible three days filled with laughter, play, connecting, love and healing. Our families come together and get the opportunity to experience the magic of Family Camp while horseback riding, zip lining, swimming, riding go karts and bumper boats, attending campfires, and so much more! It is a great weekend for families to come and create memories. 
Candlelighters Family Camp is offered to children diagnosed with cancer and their families.  Attendance is 100% free of charge ensuring that all families who are interested in having the Family Camp experience can participate regardless of socioeconomic status or trying to balance medical bills during treatment.  
What makes Candlelighters Family Camp unique is that the experience is for the entire family.  Parents, siblings and even the child living with cancer enjoy a weekend where the worries of treatments and associated struggles are left behind.
