Sickle Cell Camp
July 31 – August 4, 2019
Frontier Cove (formerly known as Dry Gulch USA)
Camp Cavett is by far our biggest camp, weighing in with 180 campers and 180 volunteers!
Every year, a variety of patients converge at Frontier Cove (formerly known as Dry Gulch USA) to reclaim their lives. This camp is a necessity when feeling disconnected and alone with medical problems. We breakdown walls and bring normalcy back to lives through many activities.
