Athletes 4 Cancer offers young adult survivors the experiences of a lifetime with kite, SUP, and surf camps.

Athletes 4 Cancer & Kiteboard 4 Cancer
announces camps for young adult cancer survivors — ages 18-40. Donor funds from our 2010 fundraiser will fuel these camps, designed to empower young adults to face new challenges, overcome fears and obstacles, and embrace life after cancer so they can get to living!!  Interested in getting involved in these camps as a volunteer or would you like to attend? Sweet! Read on…

Our first round of camps is set on the beautiful island of Maui, Hawaii in April:

Surf & SUP: April 8-14

Summer camps in Hood River, Oregon:

Kiteboarding: August 18-24
Surf & SUP: August 26-Sept. 1

If you are a cancer survivor and looking for the adventure and thrill of a lifetime, these camps are for you.  It is important to know that surfing, standup paddling, and kiteboarding are water-intense action sports with frequent impact on the water. Safety is our top priority. A sense of adventure but good common sense is required. 🙂

Food, accommodations, transportation, and camp instruction is all included in the camp. You only need to cover the airfare to get to camp.  The John Wayne Cancer Foundation and the many athletes and donors have made these camps possible. For more info on camps, check out our website or email Athletes 4 Cancer director, Tonia Farman: tfarman(at)

All cancer survivors looking to attend must fill out an app here.  All applicants must also have their doctor complete and submit this medical form prior to acceptance into the camp.

Looking to volunteer? Please fill out our volunteer application online here. We need cooks, photographers, counselors, and logistics peeps.
