On the second Thursday night of every month, we offer the parents of children diagnosed with cancer an opportunity to connect with others and receive emotional support not just from other parents, but from a professional counselor as well. Based on age group, our children and their siblings enjoy supervised fun in the nursery or making crafts. Family Nights are at Trinity United Methodist Church from 6:00-8:00.
A successful program growing by leaps and bounds is Camp Victory. Held at the Spartanburg Breakfast Optimist Club, the camp gives children diagnosed with cancer a respite from treatments and time to enjoy “just being a kid.” Activities include fishing, arts and crafts, and outdoor excursions led by wildlife experts. Siblings and parents are welcome too! On Friday night, we provide dinner and celebrate one more year of life. Dates this year are July 10-12 and July 13.
Back To School Swim Party
Each year, we invite families to Shipwreck Cove for pizza, swimming and fun before school starts back up in August. This year, it will be on Saturday, August 26.
Our most popular event is our annual holiday party at The Marriott in Spartanburg. Santa Claus comes to town and families are truly wrapped in hope, love, and the holiday spirit. Join us December 5 for this very special event!
We also have various outings for our children and families. Examples of past outings are:
Seeing the Circus in Greenville
Cribbs Kitchen Burger Cook-Off
Hub City Holiday show by Spartanburg Philharmonic Orchestra
