…. because kids can’t fight cancer alone!
At BASE Camp – We Believe Every Child Deserves a Childhood. BASE Camp Children’s Foundation has been serving children impacted by cancer and other life-threatening hematological illnesses in Central Florida since 1982. BASE Camp is a place where you can always find comfort, friends, nourishment, and encouragement along the journey …Our programs and activities are like the encampments that are built as climbers climb mountains, we set up base camps locally to help the children stop, rest, eat, play, gather with friends to gain the strength and encouragement to continue the journey and finish the climb!
Some examples of what we provide:
BASE Camp NOURISHMENT delivers over 400 meals every WEEK to children and families at the 3 local hospitals. Every Friday night the delivery of a dinner meal is enhanced with movies and popcorn and candy so that families can enjoy “DINNER & A MOVIE” while in the hospital.
BASE Camp also coordinates MILESTONE parties celebrating: birthdays and END OF CHEMO/RADIATION, etc. Bringing dessert and balloons to acknowledge and CELEBRATE the day!
BASE Camp hosts special events and parties for the children and siblings to get an opportunity to play. get peer support and enjoy “normal” kid things. And so much more!
