Happiness Is Camping is a free residential summer camp in Hardwick, NJ for children with cancer and their siblings. We have hosted over 20,000 children from more than 25 pediatric oncology hospitals.
We treat children with cancer the same as any other summer camper in the world. Our kids receive chemotherapy in our Health Center, rest, and then they're off to ride on the zip line, swim in the camp pool, or make a cool arts and crafts project.
Help us continue to provide a place where children with cancer can put aside their illness for a summer and do what a kid is supposed to do...have fun!
About EJ’s Fundraising and Half Marathon Goals:
As I begin training for my first half marathon, I’m honored to be raising money for an incredible organization: Happiness Is Camping. With your help, we can hit my $2000 fundraising goal, which will cover the expenses of helping one child to feel the joy of the outdoors regardless of their medical condition.
Aside from making an impact in the lives of incredible young people through the magic of nature and the outdoors, there are other benefits you can expect in exchange for your generous donation to Happiness Is Camping:
I will text you a personalized video of me winking at you thankfully for your donation.
Send you a personalized video of me telling a *~ScArY~* ghost story by a campfire.
You'll be terrified.
I will send you a handwritten thank you card with a juicy confession or secret.
I will create and send you a personalized bead lizard keychain.
(I can make a spider for 2 dollars more, or a king cobra snake for 2 dollars less)
I will send you a polaroid of me dressed as Elton John (picture in gallery) in any location within NYC’s 5 boroughs.
