Programs & Services
At Camp Casco, we create amazing camp experiences that build lifelong connections and a supportive community for childhood cancer patients, survivors, and their families. Our camp program and all year-round services are provided with this end-goal in mind. We welcome returning and new families to check out any of our programs and services!
We offer free social events throughout the year designed to create and strengthen bonds between childhood cancer patients, survivors, siblings, and parents. Previous get-togethers have included indoor rock climbing, swimming, cupcake decorating, bowling, and more! These events are a great way to meet others in the community in a low-pressure, fun environment. Click here to learn more about our year-round family socials.
Our capstone program is an annual week-long sleep-away summer camp that takes place at the YMCA Berkshire Outdoor Center in Becket, Massachusetts. Open to childhood patients and survivors ages 7-17 in the New England area, our program provides opportunities for campers to increase self-esteem, experience independence, practice good teamwork, and forge lasting friendships, all under the supervision of medical professionals and experienced camp counselors.
