Children of the ages 6 to 15 years with serious illnesses and their families come to Camp Soaring Eagle. We provide year round, medically safe camping programs. Campers submit applications for illness specific sessions based on the recommendation of their physician.
Camp is more than a few days of fun and games. Children who have been diagnosed with a life threatening illness such as cancer suddenly face fears and concerns that most adults have difficulty dealing with. Our specially designed programs give the campers a multitude of opportunities to try new things and build their self confidence all in a safe loving environment.
“Just one week at camp taught me I can accomplish anything I put my mind to – no matter what my physical limitations are.” – Camper
“I have never spent the night away from home ever, not even my grandma’s house.” – Type 1 Diabetic Camper
“At camp, nobody cares how I look, they only care that I have fun and that I’m safe.” – Oncology Camper
“This is the first time I have seen my son smile, laugh and have fun since he was diagnosed with cancer.”
