Camp Little Red Door

“I just hope that every kid who has cancer would be able to have a camp like this because it will change their life for the better.” -Elise, 17 years old

Camp Little Red Door is a weeklong camp held in June each year for Indiana children ages 8 to 18 who are in active cancer treatment or remission.  It is a chance for children with cancer to have the same camp experience as any other child and to interact with other children facing similar experiences.  Camp activities include swimming, canoeing, archery, horseback riding, Zip lining, nature education, rock climbing, arts and crafts, campfires, and more!  For more information about camp, please visit our Frequently Asked Questions.

For 2017, Camp Little Red Door will be held Sunday, June 18th to Friday, June 23rd at Bradford Woods in Martinsville, IN.

The Robert T. Grand Leadership Academy (for campers ages 16 to 18) is held the weekend prior to camp. For more information about Leadership Academy, please visit Frequently Asked Questions
