Mission: Camp Hobe' offers special psychosocial support programs for kids being treated for cancer and similarly-treated disorders, as well as their families, through summer camps, virtual camps, and family outings. Our goal is to create an atmosphere that enhances self‑esteem, fosters independence and friendships, and creates a feeling of belonging.
Results: Our camper numbers consistently grow by 7%-10% each year. In addition, we have been able to provide fee waivers to a growing number of campers each year - 22%-26% of campers requested (and were given) fee waivers the last 3 years, compared with 13%-18% prior to 2009.
