City Camp

Camps for kids affected by cancer & blood disorders

We know that not all kids affected by cancer and blood disorders are able to go to overnight camp, so we made a program just for them.

WCK City Camp in Surrey is for kids aged 5-12 who have had a cancer or blood disorder diagnosis, and their siblings too. As it's a day camp with a medical team on-site, children both on treatment and off can safely join in with all the magic of camp while sleeping comfortably in their own bed at night.

 

Programming, facilities, and staff & volunteer training are all designed to meet the needs of children with lived experience of cancer and blood disorders. All this means you can rest assured your child is being well looked after while making lasting memories at camp.
