A place of dreams, joy, and possibilities
A camp where children with serious illnesses and their families can forget the word "no" for a little while and embrace the promise of "yes."
Welcome to Camp Boggy Creek
Camp Boggy Creek was founded in 1996 by Paul Newman and General H. Norman Schwarzkopf, with one simple premise in mind… that every child, no matter their illness, could experience the transformational spirit and friendships that go hand in hand with Camp.
Camp Boggy Creek offers a unique experience for children with serious illnesses to experience joy and happiness in a camp setting. Part of our mission is to provide campers with inclusive activities that foster a creative and fun atmosphere, and through these activities, we encourage independence and choice. Below are just a few of the activities we offer at Camp. To learn more about all of our activities, click here.
The Camp Boggy Creek facilities are maintained and upgraded year-round, to offer the most unique and accessible camp available to children with serious illnesses. From our pool to our medical center – we have it all. Below are just a few of our facilities at Camp. To learn more about all of our facilities, click here.
Gatehouse & Water Tower
The Gatehouse and Water Tower are the first landmarks our guests see from Brantley Branch Road. Welcome to Camp!
Camp Boggy Creek is a $23 million facility that features a state-of-the-art medical facility called “The Patch.” Our full-time physician and nurse are joined by volunteer doctors and nurses when campers are at Camp. These volunteers specialize in the illness or disease group being served during a family retreat weekend or summer session. This extensive medical support gives parents the confidence to know that their child will be safe and have access to medical care as needed.
Donate now, smile later.
Camp Boggy Creek relies on the generosity of individuals, foundations, corporations, medical partners and voluntary health organizations who believe in our mission and the programs that impact our campers and their families. Donations support all program activities, including 24/7 medical care, meals and lodging — everything needed to make a week of camp an unforgettable experience for children with serious illnesses. Gifts made to Camp Boggy Creek are not only an investment in the life of a child diagnosed with a serious illness, but also give back a childhood that has been taken away.
Camp Boggy Creek is a place where children can reach beyond their illnesses and enjoy the simple pleasures of childhood. Our programs are always provided free of charge to our campers and families, and this is because of our faithful donors, partners, volunteers and Camp friends who support us throughout the year. Below are some of the ways you can make a difference in the lives of children with serious illnesses.
