Our next virtual event is April 2nd – April 30th

This four week event is themed around our family programs and encourages runners/walkers to participate in honor/support of a family member or friend. Many of our campers call Camp One Step their second home and refer to their fellow campers and counselors as their second family. Participants will experience the sense of community that kids with cancer feel at Camp One Step and hear from families who attended one of our Family Camps.
