Camp Happy Days’ mission is to offer support and encouragement to children diagnosed with cancer and their families by providing cost free year-round programs, special events and access to crisis resources. Our goal is to improve the physical, emotional and psychological health of the entire family facing pediatric cancer.

Since 1982, over 1,500 children with cancer and their families have benefitted from our cost-free, year-round programs. Camp Happy Days welcomes all children with cancer across South Carolina without charge.

Our summer camp is our signature program, but there is so much more. From age-specific on-going programs, family counseling and financial assistance, “dream dates,” hospital visits, holiday giving and more – these programs help relieve worries and strengthen family bonds. Developed with guidance from the medical community, these programs help improve the emotional, physical and psychological health of children and families affected by pediatric cancer.

At Camp Happy Days, kids discover the power within them – as they share life-changing experiences with kids just like themselves who are battling cancer. Kids can be kids again as they have fun and gain confidence. What cancer takes away, Camp Happy Days helps give back.
