About Camp COCO

The Department of Pediatrics at SIU School of Medicine organizes and accepts applications for children to attend Camp COCO (Children’s Oncology Camp Organization). Our medically supervised camp program began in 1986 as a break from hospital and clinic visits for children with cancers and related blood disorders living in downstate Illinois communities. Camp COCO is a member of the Children’s Oncology Camping Association International (COCA)—an organization that establishes safety and operational guidelines and practices specific to camps for children with cancer.
