Healing, joy, and friendship for kids and teens in the face of cancer
What is Camp Sparkle?
Camp Sparkle is our free, summer day-camp for children ages 5-12 who have been impacted by cancer. Campers experience a week of learning about cancer, participating in therapeutic activities, going on field trips, and making friends with campers and counselors who are just like them. Each summer we serve 150-170 youths; since 2003, over 2,300 campers and counselors have participated in Camp Sparkle, held in Seattle, Bellevue, Everett and Tacoma.
What is Camp Sparkle Online?
In 2020, in-person camp was not possible due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We pivoted and launched Camp Sparkle Online and discovered innovative ways to reach campers through new activities.
In 2021, we continued online camp and built an even bigger community of support for kids from coast-to-coast. Learn more here.
