It's camp season and the competition is on! During Camp Cavett, we want how to see how far our campers, volunteers, and staff can reach out to raise money for future camps.
Every summer, children in communities across Oklahoma gear up for summer – fishing, swimming, sleepovers, playing baseball. In those same communities live hundreds of ordinary children living through extraordinary medical challenges; children who too often have to watch while others play, walk while others run, and hope for a time when illness no longer limits their opportunities to have a good time.
The Cavett Kids Foundation was founded to ensure that Oklahoma’s chronically and seriously ill children have the same access to outdoor fun as healthy kids. Many children in treatment miss out on typical character-building opportunities - things like Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts, team sports, even after-school activities - due to illness. Camp provides the opportunity to experience childhood the way it is supposed to be lived, with hands in the dirt, and a worm on the hook. Camp allows these kids to establish an identity away from the treatment room, to instill confidence while creating connections. This is the Cavett Kids experience – reminding campers their illness does not have to limit their ability to have a full life.
