For more than 20 years, the camp has been a place where kids age 13-18 come to experience a fun, week-long adventure away from the hospital.
Memories are made as campers participate in a variety of activities, from archery and tennis to horseback riding and fishing. Regardless of the campers' physical capabilities, there are activities that everyone can participate in. One of the highlights of Camp A.O.K. is the special prom hosted on Thursday night.
For parents, the camp is a safe retreat for their children, staffed with doctors and nurses from the Children's Cancer Hospital. It's also a place where patients can be themselves, share their experiences and fit right in among fellow patients and survivors.
