Camp H-Town, a sleep away camp that provides children and teenagers who have been impacted by cancer with a true urban camp experience, has kicked off with an unforgettable lineup of activities for the campers.
The urban oncology camp at Four Seasons Hotel Houston, a fun-filled five days conducted in partnership with The University of Texas MD Anderson Children’s Cancer Hospital, provides kids ages 8-14 who are living with cancer a fun and safe camp setting at no financial cost to the campers’ families.
