That’s easy.. yes! If you are interested in being a KOA Care Camps volunteer, please call, and a KOA Care Camps staff member will welcome speaking with you.
They are held at various locations around North America , as KOA campgrounds do not have the facilities needed to offer specialized treatments and otherwise accommodate the unique needs of children with cancer.
The camps we support are not affiliated with either KOA or KOA Care Camps. Each is independently owned and operated.
One hundred percent of all donations go to fulfill our mission of helping send kids with cancer to camp and supporting medically supervised camps. All administrative fees are covered by other resources, so every dollar donated can go directly to supporting Care Camps.
We would welcome the opportunity to talk with you about sponsoring or partnering with KOA Care Camps.  Please contact us for additional information.
