2024-Camp-Lightheart-Flyer_page-0001-2-1-1-ff6af1a04cc1d1b634f2824cceeae350This unique program from Breast Cancer Options is a free sleep-away camp, August 25 to 28, 2024, for children of breast cancer survivors or children who have lost their mothers to the disease. It is one of few services for children in this situation.

Children don’t talk about their fears, and parents tell us that they often act out because they fear losing the parent they love and depend on. Camp provides a support group for them and allows them to meet others with similar experiences.

Their staff is headed by professionals who create a safe place to feel comfortable. The children have fun, hike, and participate in sharing circles, where many verbalize their fears for the first time.

Please email or call them if you have a child who will benefit from attending Camp Lightheart.
