A Message From Lisa Cazzola

Why do MoRE? Here are the FACTS!

Some facts about cancer: Cancer sucks. Cancer knows no ethnicity, socioeconomic class, or geography. 15,000 children are diagnosed with cancer each year. Yet pediatric cancer is hugely underfunded, receiving only 4% of federal funding. Cancer is brutal on the patient, but also on the family. Effects of cancer can last long after the diagnosis. Most likely, you know someone who's been affected.

Some facts about Camp Adventure: Kids Need MoRE Camp Adventure is a one-week sleepaway camp that serves children coping with cancer and other life-threatening illnesses, as well as their siblings. Kids can be at varying stages of their cancer or in remission. Not only is it a chance for kids to just feel like kids for a week (and not a patient!), but it's also a respite for the parents who have been in overdrive every other day of the year. We serve about 150 kids in the tri-state area at camp, and hundreds more at our programs and home and hospital visits throughout the year. The camp is offered at NO cost to the families, and the entire staff volunteers their time!

Some facts about me: It's been a hard year for me, but what helps me is helping others. Be hopeful, generous, and kind, and the world will be better in turn. Help where you can. There are many places you could donate, but for me, Camp Adventure is an oasis for everyone it touches, whether you're a patient, sibling, caregiver, donor, volunteer, or friend. That warm fuzzy feeling is contagious. I'm so grateful to have been a part of this community for 13 years, and want it to continue for years to come.

I would appreciate any donation you can give. It costs about $2500 for each camper. Donations will pay for the camp grounds, transportation, housing, food, activities, and of course, the magic (magic ain’t free!). If perhaps you don't have the funds right now, but want to donate your time, I'd love to talk to you more about that too! We love new volunteers and there's lots of ways to help. Let's do MoRE together!!

Make the Magic Happen
This life-changing experience is one of a kind. 
Our Camp Adventure Volunteers have made magic for children coping with cancer for over 28 years.  
They give up vacation time, family events and make sacrifices to make this an amazing summer 
for KiDS coping with cancer
We honor these incredible people that are the backbone of our organization. 
Our Volunteers are making a pledge to help children and families facing cancer. 
 
Who are our Volunteers?
They are school teachers, landscapers, nurses, 
construction workers, mental health professionals, college students, 
moms, dads, big sisters, survivors, caretakers
 and simply everyday heroes that want to make this summer special.
 For some of our campers this may be their last summer and we are keenly aware.

Be MoRE. GiVE MoRE. Do MoRE.
