About Camp Fantastic – Special Love, Inc.

Children with cancer have to grow up much too fast.  They feel different from other children and many miss out on activities that healthy children experience daily.  This was the reason Special Love was created.  Special Love programs, including Camp Fantastic, offer children with cancer the chance to jump, play, explore, laugh, swim and make friends through a community of support, made up of patients, family, and staff who know and understand the trials and triumphs of battling childhood cancer.  We need your contributions to assist Special Love in their mission. Be a phantom camper by giving a donation.  Enjoy camp without the bugs, sunburn or snoring counselors!  Here’s how you can help.
