Camp Dream Street is a special, week-long day camp experience serving the social needs of children with cancer and other blood disorders. Siblings are also invited to participate in the wide variety of social and recreational activities provided at the camp.

Camp Dream Street's program includes a wide variety of activities including arts and crafts, sports, dance, music, nature, swimming and special daily activities, all held in age-appropriate groupings.

Starting in the Summer of 1990 with 20 campers, Camp Dream Street has grown to serving over 175 campers, ages 4 to 14. The primary goal is to provide a care-free week of camping fun. The only requirement for the children who attend is to enjoy themselves!

Camp Dream Street gives children the opportunity to try new things, meet new friends and share many exciting experiences. Under the supervision of a Medical Director, certified oncology nurses and social workers, parents can feel confident that we are prepared to handle the medical needs of their children.
