Review for CAMP CASCO INC, Sudbury, MA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Camp Casco is the best summer camp for childhood cancer patients and survivors!! It's an amazing week away in the Berkshires, at Becket-Chimney Corners YMCA. It's really the best week of the year! There are so many fun activities, from archery and swimming to "snow ball" fights and fossil digs. Real life Mario Kart racing and under the sea dance parties and camp songs and s'mores around the camp fire! The counselors (always dressed in costume for the various theme days) put their hearts and souls into this week.

In the midst of all the fun, the campers are surrounded by others that have gone through similar experiences, by others who can truly understand what they are going through. We create a safe space where cancer is the new normal. Watching the campers grow and mature and support each other throughout the week and throughout the years has been utterly heartwarming. At the end of the day, Camp Casco is a place for kids to just be kids again and play, a place where we believe that a week of fun can lead to a lifetime of support. I can't wait to go back!
