Camp Fantastic is owned and operated by Special Love, an organization that helps children with cancer and their families. The camp has all the marks of any other fun-filled summer camp, with a unique focus on the needs of children with cancer who are either on treatment or are withint three years of treatment. Campers spend a week in August at the Northern Virginia 4-H Educational Center in Front Royal, Virginia. Activities include nature hikes, arts and crafts, canoe races, swimming, challenge courses, horseback riding, and campfire sing-a-longs. But the most rewarding part of camp is the life-long friendships and lasting memories made between campers and counselors.
Special Love also supports other summer camps, such as the week-long BRASS Camp for siblings of cancer patients, and Fantastic Friends Weekend, a getaway just for teenaged cancer patients and their best friends.
