Service Description: The Center for Courageous Kids, of Project C.A.M.P. (Children Are Magnificent People), is a tax exempt IRS 501(c)(3) not-for-profit corporation founded in October 2004 to respond to the expanding needs of therapeutic camps for children with chronic diseases. We are a world-class medical camping facility providing free and memorable camping experiences for children with life-threatening diseases and disabilities. 

We are a unique Medical Camping Facility where children battling the most serious illnesses can attend, free of charge. We run two types of programs. In the summer, the ill child (ages 7-15) attends a week long session with other children suffering from the same illness. During the school year, we hold family weekends wherein the child attends with his/her family. It is a wonderful, one-of-a-kind opportunity for the ill child to come out of the shadows of their everyday lives and step into the spotlight with other children coping with the same challenges.

You can help to mend the scars of serious illness that no one else can see by giving these very brave children self-confidence, friends, and magical memories. Over 4500 children and their families attend annually. To date, We have served families from 22 states and Canada. We have served over 68 diagnoses. WOW!
