The 2019 Survivor Summit Camp will be held July 8-13 at Echo Hill Outdoor School in Worton, Maryland. Echo Hill is known for having some of the best outdoor programming on the east coast–and we are thrilled to partner with them. Please read more about them, here.
Campers will depart together from Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia on July 8–and return on July 13. While at Echo Hill, participants will have the option to tackle a challenge course, explore the Chesapeake Bay, set out on overnight canoeing trips, participate in nightly activities, or just take down time in a beautiful location! They will also get to hear from inspiring cancer survivors, who will share their stories in the hopes of inspiring our campers! The Camp will accommodate 15 participants. The entire camp will take place in partnership with both trained Echo Hill Outdoor School guides, and an onsite support team from Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia.
As soon we finalize each of the exciting details, the full agenda will be posted here!
The Cancer Center at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia is a pediatric cancer treatment facility staffed by internationally recognized pediatric oncologists and teams with expertise in every type of pediatric cancer.
