On Sunday, July 2nd, 275 children from South Carolina will leave the worries of cancer behind as they enjoy a week filled with friends, adventures and surprises at Camp Happy Days’ annual summer camp. For one week, children battling cancer are able to discover the power within themselves as they share life changing experiences with kids just like them.
This year’s summer camp theme is “Hope, Heroes, Happy Days,” and will be held at Camp Bob Cooper in Summerton, South Carolina. A few of the camp highlights include water sports, ropes courses, themed dances, arts and crafts, a 4th of July fireworks display and more.
While camp is all about having fun and meeting new friends, it is also about changing the lives of kids with cancer. “To see the difference one week can make on these kids is truly extraordinary,” explains Cindy Hay Johnson, Executive Director of Camp Happy Days. “After Camp, they can take the memories and the friends they’ve made throughout the week to give them the strength and courage to keep fighting their battle.”
Camp Happy Days relies on the generosity of donations to provide funding and resources for summer camp and their year-round cost-free programs for families of children with cancer. To donate items on Camp Happy Days’ Summer Camp Wishlist, please visit www.camphappydays.org/
