Our Programs in Spokane
Let's Face Cancer Together!
Since 1996, Cancer Pathways has stayed true to its mission of “facing cancer together” by offering deep and far-reaching support for those who have been touched by cancer. Our free programs and support groups create a space to empower and educate our community.
We are excited to now offer in-person programs in Eastern Washington!
Pathways to Wellness Workshops

Girl Scouts in Eastern Washington and Northern Idaho have the opportunity to participate in interactive activities, learn how to reduce their cancer risk and lead a healthy lifestyle – all while earning a badge in the process! This event is open to Cadettes, Seniors, Ambassadors, and the adult women in the Girl Scouts community.
Sun. October 1, 2023 | 12pm-4pm | Register here!
If you’re a local organization interested in hosting a free ‘Pathways to Wellness Workshop’, please contact Terri ([email protected]).
Are you an educator or school administrator? We would love to come to your classroom to present our Cancer Happens program!
To date, we have reached over 117,000 middle and high school students throughout the U.S. with our cancer prevention curriculum.
About Camp Sparkle
Camp Sparkle is our free, summer day camp for children and teens ages 5-17* who have been impacted by cancer – a parents, a family member’s, a friend’s, or their own diagnosis. 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.
*Campers ages 5-12 | Jr. Counselors ages 13-15 | Counselors ages 16+
Our first summer of Camp Sparkle in Spokane was a huge success! Read what two campers had to say:
“People are so nice at camp. I want to come here every day of the summer!”
“My favorite things were the dog show, the pool field trip, bowling, the food, and other kids who are just like me!”
Save the Date!
Camp Sparkle Spokane will be back next summer: June 24 – 28, 2024
