We believe it’s important to not let children be defined by their illness. That’s why at BASE Camp, every child gets to simply be a normal child, with other children just like them. We provide a peer group where their struggles and experiences are not only understood, but shared.
It’s incredible to see the friendships that take shape at our BASE Camp events between our young members, and we believe it’s one of the most important aspects of what we do.
To that end, we include our child patients in our programs even after their treatment has ended. This extends to their siblings, whom we welcome and encourage to join all our BASE Camp activities.
We Believe Every Child Deserves a Childhood., We Achieve the Impossible Every Day., We Support Patients & Families., We Educate So That You Can Help Us.
In 1982, BASE Camp Children's Cancer Foundation was established in Orlando, Florida. Unlike many cancer foundations, we focus on providing a year-round series of programs to help children and families along the journey of cancer and other life-threatening hematological illnesses., Over the years, our services have expanded to offer more than 23 such programs, including "Second Wishes," "Christmas in July," "Milestone Parties," and many more.
