NVCCF will hold its 23rd annual Camp Cartwheel Summer Camp at Torino Ranch for critically ill children and their siblings July 17 – 20 and 24 – 27.  The event, created and managed by the Nevada Childhood Cancer Foundation, is a 24-hour, medically supervised, outdoor and overnight camp experience for children diagnosed with cancer, or other life-threatening illnesses.  Camp Cartwheel has hosted over 3,050 children since it began in 1996.

Camp Cartwheel at Torino Ranch includes four fun-filled days of swimming, scuba diving, arts and crafts, canoeing, outdoor games, rock wall climbing and more. The Nevada Childhood Cancer Foundation’s staff and volunteers provide more than 200 campers, ages five through 17, the chance to form positive peer relationships, develop greater independence and self-esteem and have the opportunity to feel healthy and happy.

“Through this magical week, we witness the true inner strength and courage of the children we serve,” said Jeff Gordon, president and CEO of the Nevada Childhood Cancer Foundation. “To see them forget about their illness for a short time and enjoy life through this medically supervised setting at the beautiful Torino Ranch is heartwarming.”
