‘Thank you for changing my life.”

  Over 30 years ago, Paul Newman’s dream to open a Camp where children could escape the fear and isolation of their medical conditions and just be kids became a reality.  This concept started a movement that has grown into a network of camps and programs throughout the world.  Camp Boggy Creek is proud to be a part of Paul’s extraordinary legacy and vision which has impacted hundreds of thousands of Children with Serious illnesses and their families.
“It’s not that the children say, ‘Thanks for a wonderful time’. It’s that they say, ‘Thank you for changing my life.” -Paul Newman.
Since 1996, Camp Boggy Creek has made it possible for over 85,000 children and family members to enjoy a camp experience in a safe, medically-sound environment. There is never a charge to campers or their families to experience the life-changing programs at Camp. That is why we need your help. We rely entirely on the generosity of individuals, foundations, corporations, medical partners and voluntary health organizations who believe in our Mission and those we serve.
 
                                          MISSION
To foster a spirit of you by breating a free, safe and medically-sound camp environment that enriches the lives of children with serious illnesses and their families.
