Its CAMP CARTWHEEL time and we have a NEW FEATURE for you this year for your child(ren)’s applications as well as for our Volunteers!!!!  Camp Cartwheel will be June 21st, 2023 through June 24th, 2023 with the Camp Yearbook Signing Party scheduled for Sunday, June 25th!  That’s right!!!  We said JUNE 2023!!!!  Camp Cartwheel will now be held in the month of JUNE! 🙂  SPACE WILL BE LIMITED as we are only having one (1) session of Camp Cartwheel this year.  Open spots will be awarded on a first come, first serve basis for registered participants of the Nevada Childhood Cancer Foundation.

NEW FEATURE!  All Camp Cartwheel applications – both Camper and Volunteer – are ONLINE!!!! Please see the links below on this page.  If you are a parent looking to send your diagnosed child and their immediate sibling(s) to Camp Cartwheel, you’ll click the “CAMPER APPLICATION” button.  If you are an awesome individual looking to support your community in a positive way and make a difference in the life of a child, you’ll click the “VOLUNTEER APPLICATION” button.  You will still need to upload all supplemental documents (i.e., photo ID, Immunizations records, physicals, copies of all licensures and certifications such as EMS, Nursing licenses, CPR/First Aid, Life Guard Certs, etc…) to the application or your may email them to the following addresses (depending on which it is):

All Camper supplemental documents not uploaded with the application should be emailed to Brenda Preza at [email protected].

All Volunteer supplemental documents not uploaded with the application should be emailed to Andrea Rapanos at [email protected].


For the children we serve, it is a time for hope, independence, feeling of triumph and connecting with other kids who fight the same battles against their disease.  For their siblings and for children whose parents are diagnosed with cancer, it is an eye-opening experience to see they are not alone in the daily challenges they face


Celebrating 28 years of hope, CAMP CARTWHEEL continues to be one of NVCCF’s most impactful programs.  Traditionally, the medically supervised camp spans two weeks each summer and welcomes over 200 children and 150 generous volunteers.  It has set the standard for summer camps for critically ill children, their siblings, and for children whose parents are diagnosed with cancer. However, this year Camp will span one (1) week only.  It is the longest running and largest camp in Nevada and is nestled at the beautiful Torino Ranch. We express our most sincere love and appreciation to Brett Torino and his amazing staff at the Torino Ranch.


NVCCF works diligently to ensure that each child’s experience is positive and memorable.  We let them know how important they are to all of us at NVCCF, or family of incredible volunteers, and the generous donors who make Camp Cartwheel possible.


Most sincerely,

Jeffrey R. Gordon, President/CEO – NVCCF

CAMP CARTWHEEL is great fun, but for many of our kids fighting cancer and other life-threatening illnesses it gives them hope, independence, feelings of triumph and the courage to carry on.


Watch this short video to understand how NVCCF’s CAMP CARTWHEEL impacts the lives of children with life-threatening illnesses, their siblings, and children with a parent diagnosed with cancer.

Contact NVCCF to find out more about the implications of living with a childhood chronic illness and how we may help.

There are a number of volunteer opportunities for many events and programs.

Donations go toward improving the lives of those touched by cancer.
