Some of Kids Cancer Alliance’s programs include Indian Summer Camp, Family Retreat, Teen Weekender, In-Hospital Programs, Quarterly events and many more. These programs give children with cancer and their families a chance to come together, have fun, and build community with other families like them while getting away from hospitals and treatment.

Thus, Kids Cancer Alliance is able to not only provide fun, but also provide assistance to help families during financially tough situations. All of Kids Cancer Alliance’s programs are provided at no cost to the families, so they are dependent on our wonderful support. Indian Summer Camp uses the collection of aluminum can tabs as one of their fund raisers.
