We are excited to host our first-ever UKANDU Family Camp in the summer of 2022!
UKANDU Family Camp is a chance for families experiencing childhood or adolescent cancer to come and have an outrageously fun summer camp experience! Family Camp, held at Camp McGrunder near Rockaway Beach at the Oregon Coast, is open to people of all ages and families of all shapes and sizes. This is a great opportunity for kids who are too young for Camp UKANDU or parents who are excited to experience the 'UKANDU Spirit' with their kids!
UKANDU Family Camp was another logical program extension of the 'hope and joy' that Camp UKANDU has delivered for more than three decades. Acknowledging the fact that too many children will die before age 8, and realizing the benefits of allowing adults the same opportunity to meet their peers who share a cancer journey, UKANDU Family Camp offers the entire family safe and supportive camping experiences. Parents benefit from having a community of peers who understand their unique challenges as much as their children do. UKANDU Family Camp offers special outdoor adventure programming for the entire family. There are no age restrictions and each member of the family can attend – including all siblings. Sharing our “You Can Do!” spirit with an entire family unit offers growth opportunities for each member of the family. We say Camp UKANDU is a place “where kids can just be kids.’ Offering parents a respite for just a few hours a day, in an environment where they know the special needs of their children will be met, offers a place “for parents to just be human.”
