Camp Boggy Creek’s mission is to foster a spirit of joy by creating a free, safe, and medically-sound camp environment that enriches the lives of children with serious illnesses and their families.
We've created this page because we want to make a difference in the lives of children with serious illnesses. We are inspired by the work of Camp Boggy Creek and wanted to support them by raising enough to support one year of The Horse Program ($25,000) per year and bring the Joy of Yes to a child diagnosed with a life-threatening or chronic illness. environment with other children just like them. Camp Boggy Creek has family weekends in the winter months and week-long adventures during summer that includes the opportunity to ride a horse, for many this may be the only time they will have to ride a horse on a trail ride. Some can’t even walk, but they can ride at Boggy!!
More than 15 percent of children in Florida live with a chronic or life-threatening illness. While many of these children receive world-class treatment at state-of-the-art medical facilities throughout the State, the psychological effects will also greatly impact the child’s recovery and/or treatment. At Camp Boggy Creek, these children are allowed to be themselves, be in control, and make their own choices. The will spend time with other children who share similar stories, who face similar obstacles, and who they can relate to about the day-to-day challenges. Our programs restore children’s spirits, provide a sense of belonging, and encourage them to fight.
