We are proud to share we have sent home 61 tired but happy campers....

Rain rain go away. Come again another day!! Camp 2019 brought much needed rain for the community and it didn’t dampen the spirits of our 61 campers.

We managed to fill the outdoor activities with lots of fun Plan Bs. We still danced to DJ Johnnie, had the Polar Bear swims, made soap, leis, and photo frames. We ate the most beautiful snacks made with love by the Snack Shack, and held baby kittens, dogs, and even potbellies pigs!

Thank you parents, for once again sharing your precious children. The volunteers worked hard this weekend to provide a safe and fun filled weekend. We laughed, we sang, we ate, and we captured the flag. We held the inaugural Alumni Program and the participants of this program made collapsible Adirondack chairs they took home along with a tool belt and some basic tools. We are proud of you! We graduated 4 long term campers and we wish them well as they embark on what one grad called “adulthood”. The world is ready for them what ever lies ahead.

To the volunteers, We couldn’t have done it with out you. You helped new campers make new friends and returning campers reconnect. Lifelong friendships were made. You were an army of fun!! So dry out, wash your own clothes, and get some much deserved rest. Mahalo!!

Our Mission


Our camp is for all children whose lives have been affected by cancer – this includes their brothers and sisters. Bereaved children are also invited to camp. Camp Circle O’ Friends is unique in that it takes all the children in the home between the ages of 6 – 18 years of age. This provides the parents a much-needed respite and an opportunity to go to a show, out for dinner or simply enjoy a quiet bubble bath.

Our Activites


There is so much to do and so many things to learn and experience. Activities at camp include indoor and outdoor crafts, swimming, fishing, horseback riding, outdoor cooking, native crafts, a rock climbing wall, media production, water-skiing and tubing, a petting zoo and a variety of sports.

Our Volunteers


Camp Circle O’ Friends is only possible with the help and support of many dedicated and passionate volunteers. Volunteers must be 19 years of age and must complete a Volunteer Application form and get a Criminal Record Check. New volunteers must have at least two references and meet with the volunteer coordinator for an interview.
