In 1990, a group of concerned parents created a camping experience for their children diagnosed with cancer and their siblings called Camp Adventure. Camp Adventure now serves the East Cost and tri-state area remaining one of the only camps of its kind to serve child cancer patients and their siblings.
In 2013, a dedicated group of Camp Adventure volunteers began KiDS NEED MoRE (Motivational Recovery Environments, Inc.) a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, to parent the camp and ensure its longevity.
KiDS NEED MoRE believes that people and families coping with life-threatening illness and trauma deserve to do more than just survive and need opportunities to enjoy normal day-to-day activities. For 24 years, through the historic Camp Adventure program, volunteers have provided fun activities that foster peer relationships, independence and respite. The mantra is… fun heals!
KiDS NEED MoRE programs and activities are designed to reunite siblings and allow parents time for respite. The organization continues to host camping programs and retreats like Camp Adventure but also hosts community events and activities including Sweet 16s, plus mentoring and college preparation through More U.
