In Memoriam

Many generous donors have contributed to Care Camps in memory of a loved one or dear friend. In Memoriam, we honor and take the time to reflect on the audacious souls who fought a long battle with cancer.

Please pause and reflect on the individuals listed below on this page. “In Memoriam” donations made in their name have helped children with cancer create many wonderful memories during their visit to a Care Camp.

On behalf of the children, siblings, parents, volunteers and everyone else associated with Care Camps, we’d like to thank the contributors for their “In Memoriam” donations to honor those who are no longer with us.

The lives of each daughter, son, sister, and brother listed are truly special. This page honors the intrepid souls who blessed Care Camps and the world with their presence. We cannot express in words our deepest sympathies for the families who lost these beautiful souls. Care Camps offers summer camp to children with cancer so that they can enjoy and experience the simple innocence of youth without the preoccupation of their illness.

Please reflect on the names on this page and pay respects to those who spread their light and love while on this earth.
