Grand County Family Adventure

A 5-day summertime adventure offered each summer to the children we serve and their entire family, at no cost to participants. For many families, due to the financial and emotional stress of their child’s illness, this is the only family vacation they can look forward to every year. The program forges strong bonds within families, while introducing them to a much needed network of other families who face similar challenges, creating lasting relationships. Families are given the chance to escape their troubles and enjoy a week together in the beauty of the High Rockies region of Colorado. Activities include boating, hiking, rafting, horseback riding, fishing, a day at Winter Park Resort, a free outdoor concert, and much more. This program has become one of our largest, as we cater to 250+ children and family members from across the country.

By the last day, we felt more like a family than we had been since before cancer hit us.
