This August, the Children’s Cancer Center is highlighting two partners of the month, Suncoast Credit Union Foundation and General Mills! The generosity of these two organizations allowed us to host one of the premier Summer experiences that our children enjoy the most: Kite Camp.
Suncoast Credit Union Foundation sponsored the first week of Kite Camp, which was dedicated to children on active treatment and their siblings. The second week of Kite Camp, sponsored by General Mills, was offered to childhood cancer survivors and bereaved siblings.
This year’s Kite Camp was filled with field trips and unique activities encompassing a cruise ship theme! “Voyagers” also known as campers during Kite Camp had the opportunity to take the water taxi through Tampa Bay, enjoy lunch on the water, create their own stuffed animal, bowl at Splitsville and so much more thanks to our incredible sponsors.
“Kite camp was such a fun experience for Jase this year! He was excited to see his new friends and volunteers each day and was able to experience a feeling of independence”, Malissa, mother of a survivor, Jase. “This year was the first time Jase had ever attended a camp without his big brother and he was so proud of himself! This also allowed me to spend some very precious quality time with Jase’s big brother, Mason. We are so grateful to all of the donors and volunteers that make this week so special for our family. Thank you so much!”
