Happiness Is Camping, for children with cancer, was founded in 1980. About 400 children, girls and boys aged 6-15 years, attend the overnight camp, staying from one to all of the sessions, depending on their health.
The camp is free to all, supported by donations and volunteer staff members. The medical staff, doctors and nurses, from Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, Montefiore and other fine facilities, provide medical supervision of the highest quality, with facilities for kids requiring chemotherapy, children at risk of bleeding and infection or with significant physical disabilities.
Happiness Is Camping is a special place where the remarkable is routine. We're a regular sleepaway camp for normal kids; girls and boys who just happen to have cancer.
(Please contact camp directly for updated session schedule.)
