On-therapy patients, up to 18 years old, and their immediate families will have the opportunity to relax and share their experiences with other families outside the hospital environment. In addition, a parent panel discussion is held between off therapy parents and on therapy parents to give guidance as families deal with the realities of childhood cancer. Children must be accompanied by at least one of their parents throughout the weekend. Brothers and sisters, up to age 18 years old, are allowed to attend. Patients and siblings, ages 5 and older, are assigned to volunteer counselors who assist them with their activities and stay in the cabin with them. Patients and siblings ages 4 and under are housed in a private room with their parent(s) and are also assigned a volunteer counselor. All other parents are housed in a separate cabin from their children.
