Becket: Camp experience for cancer patients

Camp Casco, a nonprofit organization offering free camp experiences for childhood cancer patients and survivors, is accepting applications for campers, camp counselors and volunteers for its fourth annual overnight camp at the YMCA Berkshire Outdoor Center.

This year's theme is "Lights, Camera, Action!"

The week-long camp is open to ages 7-17. Older campers can also participate in team-building and leadership exercises. Camp dates are Monday through Friday, Aug. 20 to 25.

The camp is under the supervision of medical professionals and experienced camp counselors.

Applications for campers, counselors and volunteers close on March 31. There is a $100 application fee for camper applications past the deadline. All proceeds for late applications go right back into funding Camp Casco.
