Families Who Attend Camp Agape NW

Families who attend Camp Agape NW have a child with cancer. The child’s parents or legal guardians, and all siblings from infancy to 18 years also attend. Our mission is to nurture the whole family, because when the child is ill the whole family is affected. Camp Agape NW hosts about 20 families whose child receives treatment in Washington State, whether the family resides in Washington or not. Our families are from all walks of life, religious faiths and nationalities.

Your child must healthy enough to attend camp with minimum blood count requirements of absolute neutrophil count of 1000, platelet count of 50,000 and hematocrit of 25.

Use our online application or a paper application can be provided. Applications are processed as they are received. A background check is required on everyone attending camp over the age of 18. Once your application is processed you will receive registration confirmation. Please complete a separate form FOR EACH PERSON in your family attending camp.
