BASE Camp Children's Cancer Foundation

We provide a year-round base of support for children and families who are facing the challenge of living with cancer and other hematological illnesses. We serve not only the children who are patients, but their brothers and sisters too.

About Us

B.A.S.E. Camp has a double meaning. First, it is an acronym for Believe, Achieve, Support, and Educate. Second, like the encampments that are built as climbers ascend mountains, B.A.S.E. Camp programs offer a place to stop along the journey for rest, nourishment, encouragement and strength to finish the climb. We feel that cancer, sickle cell anemia, hemophilia, and other rare/orphan hematological diseases are just such mountains in childrens lives.

We serve not only the children who are patients, but their brothers and sisters too. Our members are children, aged 0 to 19 year, who are ill with cancer or other hematological disease, or are the sibling or child of the person with the illness.

B.A.S.E. Camp is unique in that is makes a difference in the lives of children on a regular basis. Our programs focus on "being normal," participating in peer groups, which children who are not affected by life-challenging illnesses take for granted.

Sandy Bonus donates an art and theatre summer camp to us every year and the kids LOVE it! We would love to work with you on an art workshop. We could schedule it with our monthly overnight camps or we can do it independently. Let me know what you think. Thank you so much for your interest!
