CAMP FANTASTIC

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.
