For more than 35 years, Camp Happy Days has offered support and encouragement to children fighting cancer and their families. During this time, we have evolved from serving a handful of local children to helping over 550 families each year throughout the state of South Carolina.
On November 17, 2017, we will be hosting the 28th annual Camp Happy Days Heroes of Hope Gala, our largest fundraiser of the year. The monies raised are critical to helping fulfill our mission to offer support and encouragement to children diagnosed with cancer by providing cost free year-round programs, special events and access to family assistance. The programs we provide give these children hope and the will to continue fighting their battles against cancer.
The Gala was a huge success last year with over $180,000 raised for children battling cancer!
Since 1982, over 1,500 children with cancer and their families have benefitted from our cost-free, year-round programs. Camp Happy Days welcomes all children with cancer across South Carolina without charge.
Our summer camp is our signature program, but there is so much more. From age-specific on-going programs, family counseling and financial assistance, “dream dates,” hospital visits, holiday giving and more – these programs help relieve worries and strengthen family bonds. Developed with guidance from the medical community, these programs help improve the emotional, physical and psychological health of children and families affected by pediatric cancer.
At Camp Happy Days, kids discover the power within them – as they share life-changing experiences with kids just like themselves who are battling cancer. Kids can be kids again as they have fun and gain confidence. What cancer takes away, Camp Happy Days helps give back.
