Camps for Children with Cancer and Blood Disorders

About Our Patient Camps

Camp Periwinkle, a weeklong summer camp experience is provided for children ages 7-15 with cancer and other life-threatening illnesses; Camp YOLO, a weekend camp is offered every fall and spring to teenagers with chronic illnesses. The faculty, staff, and fellows at Texas Children’s Cancer and Hematology Centers are intimately involved in the camping opportunities for the patient population.
