Camp Casco: A Safe Space

Camp Casco: A Safe Space

At Camp Casco, we encourage kindness, respect, and positivity through our points and reward system, through our cabin team-building exercises, and through our camp counselors who serve as positive role models at all times. But we can’t do it alone— we ask for parents' help in ensuring that camp remains a safe place for all. Here are some ways to help us prevent bullying before it starts.

Camp Casco partners with LINX Camps to unite siblings in 2017!

Camp Casco is committed to creating amazing camp experiences that build lifelong connections for children with cancer and their families. We provide a life-changing week of sleep-away summer camp for childhood cancer patients and survivors ages 7-17 each August in the Berkshires. Applications are available now on our website!

Our dear friends at The LINX Companies are big supporters of our mission to build lifelong connections between children affected by cancer. In 2017, we are excited to team up with LINX to take our mission one step further by offering something special for siblings. LINX has generously offered to provide a similar camp experience to build community and character for our wonderful siblings. If you're among the first to submit your eligible child's application to Camp Casco 2017, your camper's sibling will receive one free week of day camp at LINX Camps!

Be one of the first 10 families to apply to Camp Casco 2017, and your camper's sibling can attend LINX General Camps from 7/3/17 - 7/7/17, completely free-of-cost. This includes camp, bussing and lunch, valued at $795.00. LINX General Camps offer a traditional summer day camp experience, where campers explore fun camp activities under the guidance and supervision of expert instructors and dedicated counselors. Campers are placed in age-appropriate groups and travel with their groups from activity to activity. Traditional camp activities may include sports, archery, canoeing, fishing, rock climbing, games, swimming, and more!

Offer applies to week of 7/3/17 - 7/7/17 only. Offer is good for one free week for one sibling per family, who must be 3-13 years old on 7/3/17. This offer is non-transferable between families and may not be applied to the child who plans to attend Camp Casco. Information on how to redeem the free week of LINX Camps will be provided to the first 10 families to complete their eligible child's application to Camp Casco 2017.

What makes Camp Casco so magical?

What makes Camp Casco so magical?

"For me, the most magical part of camp is seeing the new-coming campers getting off the bus... they're a little apprehensive and maybe nervous... In a matter of hours, they're having a great time and you know that they're leaving camp with the best friends. There's really nothing more magical than being able to watch it happen in front of your eyes, and know that they have best friends for life." - Camp Director Krystin "Lo" Whitacre
