Story of the Week: Massachusetts Lions Support Camp for Families with Ill Children

As Lions, we provide hope and comfort to people around the world. In Massachusetts, the Chatham-Nauset Lions Club supports an extraordinary camp that provides fun for seriously ill children and their families.

Camp Nan-Ke-Rafe, or Dream Day as many call it, is a rustic camp located on Cape Cod. There, six free sessions allow eight families per week-long-stay the opportunity to get away and enjoy all that summer has to offer. Lions provide a cabin and maintain the surrounding area, as well as throw a picnic for the campers and their families. Through this project, Lions help give families a way to spend time reconnecting outside of hospitals and doctor’s offices.

In this video, you’ll see Lions sprucing up the camp before families arrive for fun in the sun.

  • Extraordinary camp for this ill children and the families. It is important for long ill children to dream and have a reconnection with their families outside of the hospital. Nice project, congratulations for Chatham-Nauset Lions Club.
