Camps is a non-profit charity of the KOA
Owners Association that helps send kids with cancer
to special camps where they can enjoy camping and recreation
experiences, but more importantly, it allows them to feel
“normal,” like other kids, for a week a year.
KOA Care Camps is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization registered
under EIN # 86-0691641.
KOA Care Camps Program was created in 1984 to assist in
providing financial support to qualified special non-profit
cancer camps for children throughout the US and Canada.
Since 1984 more than $4,283,845 has been contributed. The
program grew to support 52 KOA Care Camps in 2012.
The Care Camps Trustees is a board composed of KOA Owners
and others who volunteer their time in developing a variety
of fund raising activities for these camps, including hundreds
of KOA Kampgrounds across the country. They are also the
ones who will review the application from the various camps
and make the final decision on the amount that the camps
receive from the KOA Care Camps funds.
The KOA Kampground Owners of America believe in the benefits
of camping and in giving back to others; so they have chosen
the Care Camps to be a focus of this belief. Camping is
a fun activity and what better way to help these children
than giving them a chance to go camping.
