Winfree, Christy; Williams, Richard; Powell, Gwynn M.
Camping Magazine, v75 n6 p26-33 Nov-Dec 2002
A relatively new method of helping pediatric cancer patients cope with their illness is specially designed summer camps. Camp helps children with cancer address psychological effects of the disease, bodily changes, and self-concept, and helps parents and siblings cope. Sidebars present resources and tips on incorporating children with cancer into camp programs. (TD)
