In addition to our two Houses in Philadelphia, serving 65 families each night, the Philadelphia Ronald McDonald House operates Ronald McDonald Camp in the Poconos, which offers oncology patients and their siblings the opportunity to take part in a one week summer camp. We also operate two Ronald McDonald Family Rooms at The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, which provide a comfortable space for families away from their children’s bedside. Our newest program, a Hospitality Kiosk at St. Christopher’s Hospital for Children, extends the comforts of our Houses to families with children in the critical care units, offering them snacks and other amenities.
