More about Ronald McDonald Camp:

RMC is a place where kids with cancer, and their siblings, can enjoy just being kids. It’s a week of fun and friendship, and freedom from being different. It’s a chance to experience new activities and acquire new skills in a supportive, nurturing environment. It’s a time when kids can talk openly about cancer and everybody else understands. Please feel free to contact Cindy Candela-Ryan, Camp Director with any questions.

Who Can Go?

Ronald McDonald Camp is for children ages 7 to 17 who are currently undergoing treatment or who have been treated for cancer. One sibling per camper also has the opportunity to attend. Senior Camp is specially designed for teens ages 13 to 17 and gives them the opportunity to choose their own activities in a structured environment. Junior Camp provides age-appropriate camp activities filled with fun and challenge for children ages 7 to 12. There is also a Leader in Training (LIT) and Counselor in Training (CIT) program for first-time patients and survivors and RMC graduate campers, ages 18 and 19, which helps them develop leadership skills through team building and hands-on experience with campers.
