Where Memories Are Made
A place to play. A place to feel safe. A place to giggle. A place to escape. A place to share.
Mere words can’t describe Candlelighters Family Camp, because it’s more than a place; It’s more than a camp. Candlelighters Family Camp is one of our most popular and impactful programs that offers hope, healing, and light to children with cancer and their family.
Candlelighters Family Camp is supported by the Kinnie Mae Foundation, Juan Young Trust, RE/MAX Foundation, Windermere Corporation, and many individual donors that make Family Camp possible year-after-year.
This year’s Candlelighters Family Camp brought together more than 250 campers. As one family expressed, “Having the opportunity to attend Candlelighters Family Camp made such a difference in our ability to cope with our son’s cancer and his years of treatment. Having the opportunity to share our concerns about treatment with other families dealing with the same issues reduced our sense of isolation, calmed our fears and gave us valuable insights into coping with childhood cancer.” The family also said it gave them an opportunity to create memories and allowed them to “feel normal.”
