Virtua’s Camp Oasis

Virtua’s Camp Oasis is a one-day getaway offered twice a year for South Jersey children who have a parent or loved one battling cancer. Children and teens experience a day full of fun, relaxation and support while building connections with other kids who share their unique worries and concerns.

Camp Oasis is fully funded by gifts made to Virtua Foundation and all children attend for free. It doesn’t matter if the campers' loved ones are treated at Virtua or elsewhere – the camp is open to anyone from Camden, Burlington or Gloucester counties.

For more than 10 years, this amazing program has been organized by Virtua’s oncology nurse navigators who witness the real impact cancer has on children and families every day.

“The most rewarding part of camp is when the kids are getting ready to leave and they are exchanging phone numbers with each other and hugging their team members,” said Jackie Miller, a Virtua oncology nurse navigator and camp director. “Our goal is to provide support for the kids and their parents and have a little fun along the way.”
