Who attends Camp CoHoLo?
Camp CoHoLo hosts children between the ages of 6 and 17 who are impacted by cancer or blood disorders. Campers include children undergoing therapy and those who have completed treatment. Any camper currently on treatment must receive a release from his/her physician to attend camp.
How can I donate?
Thank you for asking. There are many ways to contribute. Learn more.
Who are the medical staff members, when are they at the camp and what are their qualifications?
Physicians and nurses from Children’s Hospital and Nebraska Medicine staff the camp 24 hours/day. Most of them are the same physicians and nurses who care or have cared for the campers during the years.
What medical services are provided?
Any medications a camper requires (including oral, inhaled, intravenous, intramuscular and subcutaneous) can be administered at camp. Tube feedings for children can also be administered if needed.
Will I be contacted if my child is not feeling well or if there is an emergency?
Parents/guardians will be contacted if a child is ill or requires emergency treatment.
What are the requirements for counselors in terms of qualifications?
Counselors must be 21 years of age and pass a background check. All first-year applicants are interviewed by members of the Operations Team.
Can my child bring his or her cell phone?
Cell phones are allowed. We will hold iPods, iPads and electronic games in our office so they do not get lost or broken.
What are other things that aren’t allowed?
Food is not allowed in cabins – we want to discourage furry little friends from hanging out with campers. All medications must be turned into the medical staff at registration. Campers should not bring anything of value, since items can be lost or damaged. Clothing should be appropriate for an all-ages camp.
How can I keep track of my child?
Our Facebook page is updated at least once per day with photos of campers. If you have a specific concern, special arrangements can be made with our medical staff to keep you informed.
My son is a finicky eater and I'm concerned.
The 4-H staff does a great job of providing kid-friendly food at all three meals, and we also have an afternoon and nighttime snack. If you particularly concerned about what your child will eat, you can speak with the medical staff at check-in so they keep tabs on your child. We always bring some extra food for picky eaters.
