What makes Camp SIBsational unique?
We know that the diagnosis of cancer affects the entire family. Oftentimes siblings can feel scared, neglected, guilty and even jealous. While these are all normal emotions they can make many siblings feel isolated. Camp SIBsational provides those siblings a fun experience with peers who also understand how they are feeling better than anybody else. While not a therapeutic camp, SIBsational will have mental health professionals on hand at all times to help if needed. Camp SIBsational is the first sibling-only camp of its kind in the region.
