As an organization that focuses on childhood cancer, Camp Rap-A-Hope crosses every socioeconomic class and ethnic group as well as a full spectrum of emotional and mental development. Cancer’s indiscriminate nature opens the door for children from all demographics to be served by Camp Rap-A-Hope. All activities and support services are offered at no cost to the campers and their families as cancer has been costly enough.

We provide an exceptional, normal camping experience and many other related support services for children and youth who have been diagnosed with cancer at any point throughout their lifetime. Our support services include: Teen Weekend, Sibling Weekend, Family Fun Day, Deep Sea Fishing Trip, and Hospital Outreach. Camp Rap-A-Hope’s setting allows children to learn how to overcome challenges, both individually and as a team, form new friendships while strengthening their bond with old friends, experience acceptance, test their endurance, and above all experience love, faith, courage, and hope.
