Virtual Camp Cartwheel Celebrating 25 Years of Hope!
July 20 @ 10:00 am - July 24 @ 1:00 pm
VISIT NVCCF’s Camp Cartwheel Page on this website to register as a CAMPER OR VOLUNTEER for Virtual Camp Cartwheel, July 20 – 24, 2021.
Due to COVID-19 and the limited access to vaccines, as well as consultation with our incredible medical team, CAMP CARTHWEEL will be VIRTUAL in 2021. However, our volunteers have been meeting since January to plan and create a very special virtual experience with more activities, more interaction, and more fun.
While the way in which we experience Camp Cartwheel has changed again for this year, we know that wherever Camp Cartwheel is, it lives in the cherished memories of our hearts. For the children we serve, it is a time for hope, independence, feelings of triumph and connecting with other kids who fight the same battle against 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. The friends they see, perhaps only at camp and the relationships they create as well as the growth and self-confidence they feel is so very important
Celebrating 25 years of hope, CAMP CARTWHEEL continues to be one of NVCCF’s most impactful programs. Traditionally, this medically supervised camp spans two weeks each summer and welcomes over 200 children and 150 generous volunteers has become and set the standard for summer camps for critically ill children, their siblings, and for children whose parents are diagnosed with cancer. 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 who work hard to keep the ranch so beautiful in anticipation of our return. We hope next year!
