Zip line, rock wall climbing, remote control cars for more than 100 Children

WHAT: 

 

Camp iHope is a fun and therapeutic camp for Medical City Children’s Hospital cancer patients and their siblings. A child's difficult health journey affects the entire family, which is why brothers and sisters are also welcome to attend. The week-long summer camp experience gives the kids a reprieve from the everyday reality of living with cancer. Started by Medical City Children’s Hospital, the camp was created for children to have a place near Dallas to reunite with fellow patients, siblings and staff. This is Camp iHope’s seventh year and its theme is centered around superheroes.

9:30 a.m. – 5:30 p.m., Wednesday, June 28

Campers will enjoy zip lining, rock wall climbing, archery, canoeing and arts and crafts on Wednesday morning, along with other camp activities (swimming, fishing, etc.).
