SKY HIGH HOPE CAMP


UNTIL THERE'S A CURE, THERE'S CAMP!

ABOUT SKY HIGH HOPE CAMP

Sky High Hope Camp, now hosted at Buckhorn United Methodist Church, is a one week summer camp for children with cancer and their siblings. The facilities at the camp include cabins with electricity and bathrooms, an infirmary, a dining room, and a camp store.

The campers participate in a ropes course, nature studies, lake waterfront for canoeing and fishing, arts & crafts, volleyball, archery, a dance, camper skits and music. Campers are encouraged to participate in all activities, however, arrangements are made for individual needs. Campers may opt out of any activity.

The camp staff are all volunteers from many walks of life who have been specially selected for their interests, professional credentials, ability to work with children in the out-of-doors, and their skills in many program areas.

The staff is trained in the special needs of children who have cancer and their siblings. There is always medical staff on site able to provide needed medical care, administer medications and chemotherapy.

At Sky High Hope Camp, physical changes such as limb loss, weight alterations, hair loss, or being a sibling of a child with cancer are not perceived as different by other campers or staff. The variety of programs available to the campers gives them opportunities to build social skills, forge friendships, and just be a ‘regular kid’, having fun while experiencing mountain activities in a safe environment. There is no charge for campers.
