This page is dedicated to Camp Challenge, a camp for kids with cancer.
Camp Challenge is a grass roots non-profit organization dedicated to giving ill children and their siblings ages 6 through 18 a summer camp experience. Camp is open to all children who reside in Louisiana and have a form of cancer and chronic hematological disorders. These children do not have to pay for camp, it is free for all campers.
Camp Challenge is funded by donations from individuals and companies. We also receive money from various organizations that put on fund-raisers for the soul purpose of funding camp. Camp just completed it's 18th year!
"A bright light in summer till a cure for cancer is found."

"The mission of Camp Challenge is to enrich the lives of young hematology/oncology patients including, but not limited to, cancer and sickle cell disorders, their siblings and survivors by creating a week-long camping experience at no cost. Our purpose is to provide a recreational environment that is memorable, fun, empowering, safe and medically sound to help them cope with the challenges of childhood diseases and prepare them for life after illness.
