Patients at MD Anderson Children’s Hospital participate in Camp For All 2U activities.


Camp For All, a truly barrier-free organization that provides a camp experience for children and adults with illness or special needs, brought its outdoor activities inside to MD Anderson Children’s Cancer Hospital patients and their families recently. The event, Camp For All 2U, allowed patients to enjoy a true camp experience without needing to travel to the location in Burton.

The program allows children diagnosed with cancer and their siblings to forget about their particular challenges and simply have fun. This camp experience teaches patients independence, problem-solving, and decision-making skills that enrich their lives.

“Due to their medical restrictions, not all kids can come to camp, so this is a way for them to have a taste of that experience,” said Pat Sorrells, president of Camp For All. This year, camp included “celebrity camp days” where several radio personalities had an opportunity to participate in activities with patients at camp. Guests were embedded with a cabin or group of patients for a day of fun. MD Anderson adolescent patients and their siblings enjoyed indoor canoeing, fishing, archery, putt-putt, pretend camp-fire chats, arts and craft, petting “real-life” animals and a host of other activities.

Camp For All 2U is not just providing a camp experience; it’s giving hope, laughter and life to children. As Sorrells says, “It’s not just camping, it’s changing lives.” For more information, visit campforall.org/camp-all-2u/
