Me-One Foundation

The Me-One Foundation is a non-profit organization dedicated to lightening the load that cancer inflicts on a family. We offer a weekend of fun, respite, and pampering for adults with cancer and their families. At Camp Challenge, we focus on bringing joy and laughter back to the forefront of our campers’ lives. Cancer may be diagnosed in one person, but it radiates to the whole family.

Our magical Camp Challenge weekend offers countless activities, such as archery, karate and challenge courses, incredible arts and crafts, music and dancing, and an unbelievable spa. Our campfires (and the singing) bring back memories for many, and in one camper’s words, “It becomes a party of life.” Our professional photographers capture all of these special moments, too!

If you or a loved one is interested in experiencing Camp Challenge, as a guest or a volunteer, we would love to hear from you!

The Me-One Foundation’s Camp Challenge, the perfect prescription for fun!
