Day Camps allow patients and their siblings to come together to form bonds while also participating in activities fostering expression, healing and self-confidence. These activities include art, drama, dance, yoga and much more.
The Journey Continues
The Journey Continues is a monthly support group sponsored by Smile-A-Mile for parents who have lost a child to cancer. This group exists to provide friendship, understanding, and hope to those going through the natural grieving process. It is a safe place for parents to express their feelings.
*It should be noted that this group is for parents or legal guardians and not intended for friends or other family members.
Beyond Camp is year-round programming for adult survivors of pediatric cancer, most of whom will face late effects of treatment well into adulthood. We provide avenues for fellowship to cope with these effects and facilitate opportunities to develop their leadership skills.
