Invites will be sent to all eligible campers during the summer of 2016.

rap-a-hope2- programsCamp Ta-Kum-Ta in South Hero, Vermont and Camp Rap-A-Hope in Mobile, Alabama are the first Pediatric oncology camps to create an exchange program.  The past two winters two campers and two counselors from Camp Rap-A-Hope came to Vermont and participated in one of our Winter Programs. It was such a SUCCESS that Camp Rap-A-Hope wants some of Camp Ta-Kum-Ta’s campers to experience one of their programs.

Camp Ta-Kum-Ta has sent two campers and two counselors down to Camp Rap-A-Hope for their Teen Weekend which is held every fall!  Camp Rap-A-Hope has an excellent staff lined up, new art projects and many activities to produce a weekend of fall fun and memories.  This will be an excellent way to have Camp Ta-Kum-Ta’s campers to experience Camp Rap-A-Hope, create lifelong memories and make new friends.
