About Us

Camp Heart + Hands is for families whose never-ending strength is an inspiration to everyone. The Camp is a free service that strives to provide support to the entire family of a child or adolescent as they journey through their cancer experience. The mission of Camp is to provide families touched by cancer with a special summer camp experience. Camp is staffed by pediatric oncology nurses and physicians who also know how to have fun!

Camp Heart+Hands is open—for free—to all children and adolescents with a history of cancer, or those currently undergoing treatment, and their entire family.

Proudly located in Santa Cruz County, serving families of the Greater Monterey Bay Area
