FULL DETAILS SCHEDULE

(coming soon)

Camp Cavett invites any child between the ages of 10-18 that has been diagnosed with a life-threatening or chronic illness to enjoy the free camp each July at Lake Texoma. Though they may have many different illnesses---cancer, heart disease, kidney disease, GI disorders, sickle cell, and lung disease among the most common--- together they learn coping skills due to the education process entwined in camp activities. Camp Cavett is a place where these children can come together and have fun while learning crucial life lessons from one another.
