Through year-round meaningful and educational programming, Smile-A-Mile helps those in Alabama who are affected by childhood cancer thrive during treatment and the years beyond.

Camp SAM is a Gold Ribbon Camp!

Camp Smile-A-Mile is a member of COCA-I (Children's Oncology Camping Association, International), whose mission is to strengthen the international community of camps for children with cancer and their families through networking, advocacy, education and other resources. COCA- I member camps proudly served the needs of over 35,500 campers in 2014. In 2011, Camp Smile-A-Mile was one of the first camps to be awarded the Gold Ribbon Camp Award at the Annual COCA-I Conference.  Camp SAM met the suggested guidelines and standards for pediatric oncology member camps.  Every three years, member camps are reviewed for consideration of a renewed gold ribbon award. Camp SAM was awarded again in 2014 and is one of 54 out of 87 pediatric oncology camps that are members of COCA-I, awarded the Gold Ribbon Camp designation, an honor bestowed upon camps which demonstrate a high level of commitment to serving children with cancer and their families.
