Board of Trustees, Camp Directors and Medical Team

Camp Can Do is managed entirely by volunteers. Many members of our Board of Trustees and our various leadership teams have decades of camp experience. Many are cancer survivors and were once campers themselves.

Our highest priority is to insure a safe and fun experience for every camper. If you have any questions whatsoever, we urge you to contact us. Because many of us have “day jobs,” the best way to get in touch is probably to send us a quick e-mail via the Contact Us Form on this website. We will then get back in touch with you as soon as possible.
