Camp Debbie Lou Foundation
Welcome to Camp Debbie Lou, a retreat for children ages 4 - 14 who've been diagnosed with cancer. We are proud to be one of only a few camps that invite the entire family to a fun-filled, summertime getaway. After all, childhood cancer not only affects the children who have it, but also their parents and siblings. Whether throwing on their hats for a horseback ride, spinning their wheels around the go-cart track, or enjoying quiet time in a rocking chair; families at Camp Debbie Lou create lasting memories together.
Cowgirls and cowboys at Camp Debbie Lou are truly special. They are ordinary, fun-loving kids living with circumstances beyond their years. Their families have unique physical, emotional, and financial needs, and our mission is to be sensitive to them all. Surrounded by loving volunteers who care and new friends who can relate - we hope families will find joy, courage, and renewed hope for their future. In some cases, enjoying a fun-filled, retreat at Camp Debbie Lou may be the first time the family experiences real togetherness away from the day-to-day stress of cancer.
