Camp Hobé offers psychosocial support for children with cancer and similarly-treated disorders and their families, through summer camps and family outings. Our mission is to create an atmosphere that enhances self-esteem, fosters independence and friendships, and creates a feeling of belonging.
Camp Hobé gives these families opportunity to participate in activities just like those whose families are not affected by these illnesses. The summer camp program provides medical and psychosocial supervision to ensure children are safe both mentally and physically during camp.
Camp Hobé serves children and families from the Intermountain area (Utah, Idaho, Wyoming and Nevada) or those being treated for cancer (or similarly-treated disorders) at Primary Children’s Hospital in Salt Lake City, Utah. Children or teens who have been diagnosed with these illnesses may participate in Camp Hobé programs while being treated with immunosuppressive therapy (chemotherapy, radiation therapy or immunosuppressants) and for three consecutive camp seasons after their final immunosuppressive treatment. The patient’s family members may also participate in Camp Hobé programs during this time period.
