The National Pancreas Foundation and Rebecca’s Wish created Camp Hope, a pediatric pancreatitis summer camp for children and young people suffering from pancreatitis, or post-TPIAT. At Camp Hope, campers can experience all the joys of camp without limitations. It is also a place where they can meet to bond/build friendships in a fun and safe setting that includes camp activities such as swimming, archery, horseback riding, zip-lining, crafts, indoor basketball, photography, color war, campfires, and more!
At Camp Hope, campers can participate in things they have never been able to do while having fun, finding respite, and experiencing a new sense of belonging. All while staying safe under the guidance and care of an onsite medical and psychosocial team.
Our second in-person Camp Hope event will be held July 30 – August 4, 2023, at Morgan’s Wonderland Camp in San Antonio, Texas! This is for campers who are 8 – 18 years old. Camp is free for campers and volunteers (19+ years old). Travel stipends are available for those who need financial assistance.
