You are invited to help support this wonderful camp in our third decade of bringing “normal” childhood experiences to children and
families who may have missed them due to their medical circumstances. CAMP UKANDU offers what many other summer camps offer – archery, horseback riding, a climbing wall, swimming, skits, campfires and so much more. What makes us unique is that everyone at camp is touched by cancer.
Our campers are patients and their siblings, ages 8-18, each navigating the individual challenges that come when a family faces the rigors of cancer. Parents and kids alike are comforted in knowing that there is medical staff in place, 24/7, to address the special needs of this amazing group of children. In
an environment where being bald or having a missing limb is
unremarkable, these kids don't stand out and are free to just be kids.
Camp is 100% free to all campers and families. With only one paid employee, we rely on donations and a volunteer staff to support this youthful rite of passage, that may otherwise be impossible for these kids without CAMP UKANDU.
You may participate in four ways: Become a Sponsor, golf and dinner tickets, as well as cash donations
* We are also looking for specialty items for our silent auction. Ideal items would include: Golf Clubs; Golf Gear; Rounds of Golf at various courses; Travel Packages and other premium goods and services.

The mission of Camp UKANDU is to bring joy and hope to children living with cancer, their siblings, and their
families, through “outrageously fun” camping experiences.
The purpose of Camp UKANDU is to provide a safe and secure environment in which children living with cancer
can have happy childhood experiences that have been missed due to time spent dealing with cancer and its
Camp UKANDU recognizes that cancer affects the whole family, and that siblings and parents also have a need
for some respite from the extraordinary demands and challenges posed by the disease.
