We're excited to announce that we are organizing and supporting the first pediatric brain tumor family camp to be run in the New York City area in late August, 2011.We also want to thank our long-standing partners, Jenna's Rainbow Foundation, for again joining us to support this effort.

One way CBTF fulfills our mission  is to create communities in which children, siblings, and parents can share information, emotions, hope, dreams, and practical approaches. Family camps are one of the best ways to initiate these communities. Because camps are so valued by families CBTF wants to bring this opportunity to as many families as possible and especially to families that would be challenged traveling to a distant location or spending a full week away from home.

Happiness Is Camping (HIC), located on 145 scenic acres in Hardwick, New Jersey and just an hour away from midtown Manhattan, is the ideal venue for  CBTF’s first  pediatric brain tumor family camp in the New York CIty area. (We also sponsor a camp for families in Wisconsin as well as teen and young adult survivor camps in Montana.)

Camp facilities include spacious, air-conditioned and handicapped accessible cabins, a beautiful dining hall, new full size gym, heated and lighted pool, climbing tower, ropes course, recreation building and a sparkling lake at the camp's center. A new Health Center and Gym are both air-conditioned and are state of the art facilities. A recreation building, arts and crafts center and fully equipped Health Center is equipped to handle on-going care enabling HIC to welcome children with special medical needs.
