When New Mexico kids are diagnosed with cancer, the painful procedures and obstacles they face often last for years. Camp Enchantment gives them a chance to just be kids for a week each summer.

The camp, held in Torreon, NM, hosts kids and teens who have or have had cancer. Donations pay for everything for every camper, from medical care and counseling to food and activities.

Organizers say kids get to have the camp experience without putting an additional financial burden on their own families, and it gives them a surge of hope during a difficult period of treatment or recovery.

Each camper’s fees cost around $2000, and around 85 attend each year.
