After volunteering for only one year at Camp, Camp Rap-a-Hope has a very important place in my heart. Ever since my best friend was diagnosed with cancer in eighth grade, I have dreamed of volunteering at Camp. Camp Rap-a-Hope is a week of summer camp for kids ages 7-17 who have or have had cancer, where the kids can enjoy the outdoors at beautiful Camp Grace, do dozens of fun activities, and most importantly just be kids. As a volunteer last summer, I helped with Cabin 1 Boys, who are ages 7-10. These kids are crazy and full of energy, so our week is full of basically running around and corralling our cabin. One of the best overall parts of the week of camp is how dealing with cancer is highlighted, but also kind of forgotten during the week. A support group for the kids is put in place and, but throughout the week all the campers get to be normal kids and forget about any medical problems they have. When they say Camp Rap-a-Hope is the "best week of the year," they aren't kidding. Another amazing aspect of Camp is that the week is provided free of charge for the campers and their parents. That is where the Bring Home the Bacon Run and any donations help. All the money raised will be used to provide children with cancer a summer adventure they will never forget! Please consider donating to this amazing cause that is so close to my heart. No donation is too small! Thank you so much for your generosity.
