Sibling Camp: To Be Determined
Campers include children undergoing therapy and those who are off treatment. Children in remission since age two share the camp with newly diagnosed twelve-year-olds; regardless of the age of diagnosis, they all share a common bond.
The camp is separated into two sessions. Children ages 6 to 11 attend camp for four days and three nights, followed by campers ages 12 to 17 who spend five days and four nights.
Approximately half of the children who attend Camp CoHoLo receive medication for their condition. The volunteer staff at Camp CoHoLo includes pediatric hematology/oncology physicians and nurses from the Nebraska Medical Center and Children's Hospital and Medical Center who maintain strict medication schedules and monitor the health of all campers.
Since the health of the campers is the medical staff's top priority, each day's activity schedules are designed and adjusted based on the medical needs of each child. A typical day at camp might include a high-wire obstacle course, water slides, team-building exercises, crafts, games, songs and a camp fire – all directed towards building character and confidence.
