Thirty life-changing camps and programs serving children living with serious illnesses and their families around the world, always free of charge.
Play with a purpose
Throughout SeriousFun Children’s Network, creative staff and volunteers ensure that every child experiences success and gains the confidence to try new and exciting things in a supportive environment.
Our camps feature a diverse range of inclusive programs such as universally accessible high ropes courses and adaptive winter sports, as well as traditional camp activities like swimming, boating and campfires. We also bring camp to resource-limited locations around the world through our Partner Programs.
In addition to the conditions served at camps throughout the US, Europe, Asia and the Middle East, the Global Partnership Program served almost 2,800 children living with HIV.
About our programs
Hospital & Community OutreachWe deliver the magic of camp right to bedsides and playrooms. With adaptive, child-driven programming our staff and volunteers restore choice to kids who so often lack it.
Family WeekendsIt’s play for the whole family! Come together at camp for universally-accessible, memory-making fun in a space marked by community and understanding.
Sibling CampCamper siblings experience the healing power of laughter and adventure, guilt-free. With intentionally-designed programming we know a touch of camp magic goes a long way.
Winter AdaptiveAdaptive skiing, snowboarding and snowshoeing—we find a way to get every kid that wants to ride down the mountain. It’s a weekend equal parts excitement and relaxation with the family.
Bereavement CampFor families who’ve lost a child through serious illness to reflect and celebrate life. Camp offers the chance to connect with others experiencing loss and journeying onward.
Residential CampWhere children with serious illnesses have the chance to “kick back and raise a little hell.” A week marked by inclusivity, adventure and empowerment. And a few surprises—that’s part of the magic!
In countries where the medical and psychosocial needs of children are often outside of what local resources can provide for, SeriousFun Partner Programs meets the needs of children who have been marginalized by their condition and by their community’s response. Working in collaboration with other trusted international organizations, the programs offer children living with serious illnesses in Africa, Asia and the Caribbean the life-changing experience that children who attend a SeriousFun Camp in the U.S. or Europe get – an experience that helps them reclaim their childhood, restore their hope and renew their sense of possibility. The result is locally designed, culturally applicable programs that excite, inspire and empower children all around the world.
