On Sunday, July 3rd, 250 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 “High Five for 25,” celebrating 25 years at Camp Bob Cooper in Summerton, South Carolina. The entire week is filled new and exciting opportunities where campers get stronger each day. 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.
“It’s truly remarkable to see the difference one week can make on these young kids lives,” explains Cindy Hay Johnson, Executive Director of Camp Happy Days. “After the week, campers can take the memories and the friends they’ve made at camp to give them the strength to keep fighting.”
Camp Happy Days relies heavily 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 amzn.com/w/3AVFBJEA65ZJZ or find their Wishlist online at goo.gl/zTmwal.
