Camp Connect 2023 Wrap-Up
Welcome to Camp Connect! Cancer Care Services’s overnight weekend retreat saw families create lasting memories and form meaningful bonds with other families who have a shared commonality…cancer.
The weekend started with a lively game of musical chairs that had everyone laughing as they raced for the nearest seat. After icebreakers, families worked together to overcome challenging teamwork games like Chocolate Lava River Monster (say that three times fast!) and deepen their bonds.
Camp Connect would not be complete without archery, canoeing, fishing, hayrides, and the challenge course! Everyone had a chance to push themselves out of their comfort zones by swinging through the air on the giant swing and speeding down the zipline. One of our young campers even convinced Miss Megan to join him on the zipline!
A breast cancer patient whose children attended CampCARE and the Teen Retreat this past summer got to experience the magic of Camp for herself. She shared, “I now get why my kids LOVED this place this summer because I now love it also.”
The families at Camp Connect gave each other strength, support, and endless smiles. We are so grateful for the many moments of connection and healing!
