  • Camp CoHoLo's mission is to serve children between the ages of 6 to 17 that are impacted by cancer or blood disorders. Campers include children undergoing therapy and those who are off treatment. Children in remission since age two share the camp with newly diagnosed twelve-year-olds; regardless of the age of diagnosis, they all share a common bond. Camp CoHoLo was founded in 1985 as a way to give kids with cancer and blood disorders a 'normal' camping experience. With their daily medications and special medical needs, these kids often didn't have an opportunity to attend camp before Camp CoHoLo was founded. We now host approximately 150 children each summer, as well as approximately 25 children each fall for a weekend sibling camp. Camp CoHoLo is operated entirely by volunteers, including the camp director. Our overnight counselors are men and women who agree to spend four or five days at camp, sleeping in bunks at night and playing all day. It's a great escape from everyday life for both campers and counselors.
