KOA Care Camps is a non-profit charity established in 1984, which helps send children with cancer and their siblings, to special summer camps for one week out of the year. They participate in camping, recreational and outdoor activities. As of 2011, the KOA Care Camps is a group of 48 camps throughout North America supported by donations from campers like you who stay at Kampgrounds of America. Since its creation, the program has contributed more than $4.2 million to help these children in need.
