Since opening in 1996, Camp Boggy Creek has welcomed more than 75,000 children with serious illnesses and family members for free therapeutic camp programs. Modeled after Founder Paul Newmanís Hole in the Wall Gang Camp and accredited by the American Camping Association, Camp Boggy Creek is specifically designed and equipped to provide camping experiences at no cost that are not only memorable, exciting, and fun, but also empowering, physically safe and medically sound.
Our year-round programs support children ages 7-16 years old, who have a serious illness in one of the following 15 groups: cancer, craniofacial, diabetes, epilepsy, heart, hemophilia, immune deficiency, gastrointestinal illnesses, kidney, rheumatic/arthritis, severe asthma, sickle cell, spina bifida, kids on ventilators and transplants.
The programs at Camp Boggy Creek instill in both the children and family members an outlook that is positive and sustainable, a sense of strength, courage and confidence that lasts well beyond their stay at Camp. Above all else, Camp Boggy Creek inspires hope, helping children to forget their illness and to remember their many reasons to live.
