Virtual Camp Sparkle

Healing, joy, and friendship for kids and teens in the face of cancer

Camp Sparkle is a free summer day camp offered to children ages 6-12 who have been impacted by cancer. Campers experience a week of learning about cancer, participating in therapeutic activities, and making friends with campers and counselors just like them. A week at Camp Sparkle is a week filled with laughter, friendship, and fun!

We are committed to reducing the financial burden of cancer on families which is why we offer our camp free of charge.


Teens ages 16 and older are eligible to be volunteer counselors.

Teens ages 13-15 are eligible to be junior counselors.

In addition to our camp counselors, we are always looking for individuals and groups who want to help support our campers. Learn more about our volunteer opportunities.
