(MARTINSVILLE) - Little Red Door Cancer Agency is hosting Camp Little Red Door, a five-day summer camp for children with cancer.
The camp will be July 27 through Aug. 1 at Bradford Woods near Martinsville. The registration deadline is June 13.
Any child 8 to 18 years old with cancer or in remission who is living in Indiana is eligible to attend. One sibling or friend per patient may attend, if space allows.
Campers ages 16-18 participate in the Leadership Program 2-3 days before camp where the goal is to work as a team and mentor the younger campers.
Campers participate in swimming, canoeing, fishing, archery, campfires, arts & crafts, horseback riding, a physical challenge course featuring rope ladders & bridges and much more.
Camp Little Red Door maintains an experience medical staff 24 hours a day, many from ranks of Riley Children's Hospital. Medications, oral and intravenous, can be given at the infirmary. All facilities are accessible to people in wheelchairs.
Little Red Door asks families to send their child for a nominal fee of $25 ($50 per sibling), and financial assistance is arranged for anyone unable to make the payment.
The actual cost to send a child to camp for one week is $1,250. Camp Little Red Door is made possible through the annual Camp Little Red Door Golf tournament organized by Robert T. Grand, grants, the Adopt-A-Camper program which encourages individuals and companies to sponsor a child's trip to camp, and contributions from the community.
