Camp Bluebird is not an ordinary camp. It has a special purpose and a unique mission. The campers are all adult cancer survivors. Campers can relax by viewing the natural beauty of the outdoors, participating in arts and crafts groups and enjoying a variety of other recreational activities. Camp Bluebird offers time for listening and learning and is designed to help reduce the isolation felt by many cancer patients. It is a time for being with friends and a time for caring and sharing. The 3-day, 2-night camp is held twice each year and is free of charge to the campers. To apply please call 838-3519 for more information.
