A common experience links all Cavett Kids -  a unique environment where they feel truly understood - sometimes for the first time in their lives.


Our Story

What started as a dream by founder Danny Cavett, evolved into six camps serving nearly 360 children with various life-threatening and chronic illnesses.

A difference is made in the lives of at least 12,000 children and their families each year by our annual camps and ongoing programs.

The diagnoses differ ranging from leukemia, heart disease, cystic fibrosis, Crohn’s disease and several others. 


Our Mission

To develop CharacterCoping, and Connection for kids battling life-threatening illnesses.

Our Values

Hope. Encouragement. Acceptance. Perspective. Trust.

Our Motto

Where Illness does not define the child
