The mission of Kids 'n Kamp is to provide children who have been diagnosed with cancer unique programs and services that focus on their emotional, educational and social well being and enable them to engage in family recreational activities. Kids 'n Kamp is not a United Way agency and therefore must rely on the generosity of corporations and individuals to maintain their programs and services. Kids 'n Kamp began in 1982 when a handful of dedicated volunteers coordinated a weekend summer camp for children with cancer. Over the years the group has grown, offering programs throughout the year with a single goal in mind: helping children and their families, whenever and wherever that help is needed. Kids 'n Kamp offers a range of programs and services free of charge to children, teens and young adults throughout Ohio. Many of these children are undergoing chemotherapy and/or radiation treatments for their disease. Group members also include children in remission from cancer who offer hope and encouragement to newly diagnosed children.
