Campfire Circle continues to reach kids and families throughout the pandemic wherever they are, with camp-inspired overnight camp, teen & leadership, in-hospital and community programs. In-person or online—no matter what—we continue to be there for you and your family in all four seasons.
Even COVID can’t stop camp!
A lot has changed because of COVID — but not the needs of our Campers.

Our medical advisory committee and task force, made up of experts in paediatric oncology and infection control, are guiding our efforts to provide safe in-person programming.

From the great outdoors to hospital floors, we are there for kids & families
