Families find respite during a week of summer camp
Bangor, Maine (June 14, 2023) — Growing up, kids just want to go to summer camp. When families face a cancer diagnosis, enjoying summer activities that others take for granted may be far from their minds.
Camp Hope, a partnership between Northern Light Eastern Maine Medical Center and the Bangor YMCA, is held at the YMCA Wilderness Center at Camp Jordan in Ellsworth from June 18 - 24. This special week gives children a real summer camp experience, doing all the things they love, learning new skills, creating arts and crafts, paddling boats, going hiking and swimming, singing songs, and building campfires.
