Until there's a cure ... there's UKANDU

Want to Get Involved?

You are invited to help support this wonderful organization in its third decade of bringing “normal” childhood experiences to children and families who may have missed them due to their medical circumstances. Even though lives may be cut short, we believe campfires, camaraderie, horseback riding and rock walls are gifts of childhood that need not be lost to our campers.

UKANDU programming is 100% free to all campers and families. We rely on donations and a volunteer staff to support this youthful rite of passage that may otherwise be impossible for these kids without UKANDU. Just one week of programming costs approximately $1500 per participant.
