July 5, 2020 – July 31, 2020 all-day
Counselor and Mentorship Program (CAMP)

The Counselor and Mentorship Program is available to 16-year-old children with cancer and siblings and is held during Sessions 2, 3, 4, and 5. Campers should be able to attend all 4 sessions in order to participate.

CAMPers participate in STEM workshops each morning and learn how to 3-D print, build robots, program computers, and much more. They also learn valuable life skills that include basic cooking, first aid, doing laundry,  interviewing for jobs, changing a car tire, and jumping a car battery. CAMPers also participate in college prep courses that include college major research, essay writing, and SAT prep. All CAMPers will participate in a Counselor-In-Training program in which they will assist younger cabins and leave with valuable work experience. Lastly, CAMPers attend a series of guest speaker seminars that included in 2019 a retired US Navy SEAL Captain, an architect who worked on the UN Building and Google headquarters, a US Olympian, and two scientists who are currently developing an alternative to traditional chemotherapy.
