Camp Reach for the Stars

Camp Reach for the Stars is an event we adopted that continues to be near and dear to our hearts. It’s a weekend where we watch children play, laugh, get pampered, and if only for a moment, forget they are cancer patients.

2019 will be our 6th annual sponsorship of this weekend-long family camp that is provided at no costs to families of San Luis Obispo County children with cancer or in remission. At Camp Reach for the Stars, children can meet other children who have experienced the cancer light, lost their hair from chemotherapy, or suffered a relapse after months or even years following treatment. They understand one another. It’s a camp where the campers can discuss, relate, and share common experiences that might seem foreign in most other social contexts. It’s also a place where parents can share stories and resources with other parents and form supportive bonds with one another.

At Camp Reach for the Stars, the entire family can take a much needed breath.

This event sells out quickly, so contact us early to reserve your place. If you are not on our mailing list, please call our office at (805)547-1914 and provide your contact information. In mid-March each year, we will send you a “Save the Date” postcard giving all of the details on how to make your reservations. Reservations are only accepted after the postcard is received in the mail.

For volunteer or sponsorship opportunities, please call (805) 547-1914.
