North Texas offers a wide variety of virtual support groups, family support, and community events throughout the year. Below are some of the events happening in the spring, and beyond.
Movie nights. Song circles. Dance parties. Scavenger hunts. Talent Shows. Camp Kesem chapters, student leaders and campers from coast-to-coast are taking part in our virtual summer camp program designed to give children impacted by a parent’s cancer the opportunity to build connections and relationships, provide avenues for self-expression and reflection and to have fun with other kids who are going through similar experiences.
