Medical Partners

Healthcare Partners

Healthcare Partners play a vital role in Camp Boggy Creek’s mission to serve seriously ill children throughout Florida. These collaborations which include hospitals and healthcare organizations provide essential resources throughout the year. Many supply in-kind gifts and help recruit campers and medical volunteers. We are grateful for their continued confidence and support and thank them most sincerely.
