Camp Grey Dove

Any Baby Can offers a summer camp for siblings of children diagnosed with cancer or special health care needs. The camp helps kids learn coping skills while making friends and having fun.


When a child is diagnosed with cancer, the whole family is affected. Siblings may experience feelings of sadness, jealousy or guilt.

Camp Grey Dove is a fun summer camp specially designed for siblings of children diagnosed with cancer or special health care needs. Campers benefit from meeting other kids who understand, as well as making new friends, trying new things, and “taking a break” from family stress.

The camp has traditional activities like swimming, a ropes course, scavenger hunts, archery and a talent show. In addition, there are therapeutic programs and group counseling that help campers process their experiences. The therapy is fun and age-appropriate, with activities, crafts and games that get kids to open up, explore emotions, and learn coping skills.

Applications are reviewed and counselors selected based on their skills and experience, a desire to work with children affected by cancer, previous camp experience, and availability.
