Horizon Day Camp - Metro DC|VA|MD

Children with cancer and their siblings live in a world of NO, but at Horizon Day Camp, it's a world of YES!

Providing memorable summers since 2022 for children ages 3 1/2 to 16 years old, Horizon Day Camp Metro DC|VA|MD brings the simple 
pleasures of childhood back to children struggling with cancer, changing months of loneliness and isolation into summers filled with sunshine, laughter and happiness. And because Horizon is a day camp, it does all this while allowing the children to continue their medical treatment and enjoy the comfort and safety of their own homes at night.

Year-Round Programming

Horizon also offers Fun-Days which includes exciting activities and events when camp is not in session, as well as Horizon on Wheels, a one-of-a-kind program that provides hours of Horizon fun to children undergoing treatment in pediatric oncology units at Horizon affiliated hospitals.
