Camp Hobé Thank You for Donation Letter

We at Aravada Springs received a thank you letter this month from “Psychosocial Support Programs for Kids with Cancer and Their Families,” a non-profit organization, for an Aravada Springs “in-kind donation” of drawstring backpacks to Camp Hobé Incorporated. This kindness resonates because it aligns with our emphasis on gathering together to build and foster relationships among family and friends.

What is Camp Hobé?

Camp Hobé Incorporated is a nonprofit organization based in Utah. It is dedicated to providing support and empowerment to children and teenagers diagnosed with cancer and their families. Camp Hobé organizes summer camps and year-round activities where young cancer patients can have fun, build friendships, and gain a sense of normalcy in a supportive environment. The organization aims to enhance the emotional well-being of these children and promote a positive outlook during their cancer journey.

Why is this important and how does this help?

Joining a camp setting with other children who have cancer or similar disorders can be immensely beneficial for kids facing this challenging situation. Here’s how it helps alleviate the stresses and uncertainties:

Shared experiences

Being surrounded by peers who are going through similar hardships creates a sense of camaraderie and understanding. It helps the children realize they are not alone in their struggles, fostering a supportive community where they can openly discuss their experiences.

Empathy and validation

Interacting with others who can relate to their emotions and challenges can provide validation and a sense of empathy. The camp environment allows them to express their feelings without judgment, helping to reduce feelings of isolation.

Emotional support

Kids at these camps often develop deep bonds and friendships with others who understand what they’re going through. This emotional support network becomes a valuable resource during difficult times, providing encouragement, comfort, and a sense of belonging.

Normalcy and fun

Participating in camp activities allows children to engage in normal childhood experiences and have fun, even amid their medical treatments. It helps them momentarily shift their focus away from the stresses and uncertainties of their condition and enjoy moments of joy, laughter, and recreation.

Positive outlook

Camp experiences can boost a child’s morale, self-esteem, and overall well-being. Engaging in activities, games, and creative outlets can empower them, instill a sense of resilience, and provide a positive outlook, which can be crucial in their journey of living with cancer or similar disorders.

By providing a supportive community, understanding peers, and opportunities for enjoyment, Camp Hobé and similar organizations play a vital role in alleviating the emotional burdens and uncertainties that come with a cancer diagnosis, helping children build resilience and find strength in their shared experiences.

In Closing

We hope you will consider Aravada Springs as a full-service campground venue for such groups as Camp Hobé Incorporated.
