Nancamp offers children dealing with cancer the opportunity to break free for one or two weeks by participating in a summer day camp experience. At no cost to the family.

Nancamp is for:

  • Children who have or had cancer and can participate in the summer day camp activities
  • Children who have recently had a parent or sibling pass away from cancer, or
  • Children who have a parent or sibling suffering from cancer

Children are accepted after consultation with parents or guardians, and with the family or attending physician. Participating children are fully integrated into the day camp groups and activities. Their experience with cancer is kept confidential except for the camp director and the child’s camp counselor.

Camp fees and reasonable associated expenses, such as transportation, are paid by the Nancy Bostley Memorial Fund. Spaces are limited. Applicants are accepted on a first-come-first-served basis, pending approval by the Nancamp trustees and the camp directors. Priority is given to first-time applicants. To apply for a sponsorship, please contact Katie Van Dorp at

Nancamp also sponsors children dealing with cancer for additional school vacation week programs.
