In the early 1970's, Dr. Audrey Evans, the Clinical Director of the Oncology
Division for the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, had a vision for the
children she treated for cancer on a daily basis. Having seen these children
withstand harsh and painful treatments, she sought to create a place where they
had the opportunity to laugh, have fun and enjoy being kids. With this, her
dream to create a summer camp experience for children with cancer was born.
During the early years of her pursuit, small groups of children enjoyed camping
experiences at camps in New Hampshire, Cape Cod and Pennsylvania. Then, in 1987, Dr. Evans' dream was fully realized when the Ronald McDonald Camp was
established as a special project of the Board of Directors of the Philadelphia
Ronald McDonald House. Dedicated staff and volunteers worked to shape a summer camp program that was also special enough to meet the needs of our campers. Over the last twenty years, Ronald McDonald Camp has "grown up" and expanded into an extraordinary summer camp for children with cancer, ages 7-19, and their siblings.
