    The Cancer and Blood Diseases Institute at Cincinnati Children’s hosts a week-long summer camp every year. “Hem / Onc Kids Camp” takes place at Joy Outdoor Education Center in Clarksville, OH. The staff works closely with the Cincinnati Children’s medical team to create a safe, supportive environment for children, no matter what their abilities. The camp is an opportunity for kids ages 7-16 to develop new skills, form lasting friendships and build their self-esteem, all while having a great time. Patients are encouraged to bring a sibling.
