At KiDS NEED M♥RE we believe that families coping with cancer and life-threatening illness deserve opportunities to enjoy normal day-to-day activities. For over 25 years, through the historic  Camp Adventure program, our volunteers have provided fun activities that foster peer relationships, independence and respite. We believe that fun & friendship heals.

Our programs and activities are designed to unite siblings and allow parents time for respite. We create networks with other families that are facing similar experiences.
