Camp Hobé is a special psychosocial support program for children being treated for cancer and similarly-treated disorders & their families. Through summer camp programs and family outings, we provide a place for them to be “kids” having fun. Our mission is to create an atmosphere that enhances self-esteem; fosters independence and friendships; and creates a sense of belonging.

Camp Hobé is a special psychosocial support program designed for children with cancer and similarly-treated disorders. Family members can participate in our programs, as well. Camp Hobé gives these families the opportunity to participate in fun activities just like individuals whose families are not affected by these illnesses. Our program offerings include three camp sessions each summer for kids and teens between the ages of 4 to 19 years, and at least 2 family outings during the fall and winter. Our summer camp program provides medical and psychosocial supervision to ensure children are safe both mentally and physically during camp.Learn more.
