Camp Friendship
Where Kids With Cancer Can Just Be Kids

Nothing seems as unfair as a child stricken with cancer. Children shouldn't spend sunny days in the hospital suffering through spinal taps and chemotherapy. They shouldn't be fighting for their lives against an enemy the can't even see. It's hard on families. It's hard on kids. But there is a place where kids with cancer smile and laugh and play, a place where they're not "different" or "sick," a place where they have the chance to be kids again. It's called Camp Friendship.

Camp Friendship, the premier program of the Carol Jean Cancer Foundation, Inc. (CJCF), is a special, week-long residential camp for children with cancer - offered free of charge -- that is designed especially with their needs in mind. The kids who attend are being treated at area hospitals (listed in alphabetical order):

  • Children's National Medical Center (Children's Hospital)
  • Georgetown University's Lombardi Cancer Center
  • Inova Fairfax
  • Johns Hopkins
  • The National Institutes of Health (NIH)
  • National Naval
  • Sinai Hospital of Baltimore
  • University of Maryland Medical Systems
