Each year the Wibbeler kids — Brenden, 12; Tyler, 10; and Emma, 8 — tell their dad Nathan they can’t wait for their week at summer camp.
“They love swimming every day and the craft projects, like playing a recorder made out of PVC pipe,” Nathan says.
But fun is just part of what’s offered by Camp Hope, a program for kids ages 6 to 12 whose family member or loved one is living with cancer. This free Edward Cancer Center program has served about 400 campers since its start 10 years ago.
