Camp Cartwheel

NCCF’s Camp Cartwheel is an outdoor three-night camp experience designed to help children with cancer or other critical illnesses as well as their siblings overcome the physical, mental and emotional obstacles posed by childhood disease.  Camp Cartwheel provides a relief from the stress of hospitals, clinics and the trauma of fighting disease.   For patients, it’s a time to have fun with their brothers and sisters and remember what it feels like to be a kid again.

Camp CartwheelEach summer since 1996, critically ill children and their siblings, ages 5 to 17, look forward to Camp Cartwheel where they enjoy four fun-filled days of swimming, hiking, arts & crafts, canoeing, scuba, outdoor games, rock wall climbing and more! 

Children diagnosed with cancer, HIV/AIDS, sickle cell, renal disease, hemophilia, and immunologic diseases look forward to Camp Cartwheel experiences for strength throughout the year.  In 2012, Camp Cartwheel grew to offer two camps to meet the needs of critically ill children in Southern Nevada.  With over 100 children in each session, campers and volunteers come together at The Torino Ranch to create life-long memories and friendships.

Camp CartwheelWith the help of the Torino Foundation, thecommunity and local businesses, NCCF works to provide a medically supervised cost-free camp program for children with cancer and other life threatening illnesses.  Camp Cartwheel gives campers the opportunity to form positive peer relationships, develop independence and self-esteem, serve as role models for one another, and look to the future with hope and courage.
