About Sickle Camp
NW Sickle Cell Camp was founded by the Charles Drew Sickle Cell Health Board in 1993. Camp allows our children to  have an opportunity to experience a variety of activities such as boating, arts and crafts, bicycle riding, hiking, fishing and being outdoors under the direction of health care professionals knowledgeable about Sickle Cell Disease and treatment issues.  Camp provide campers the opportunity to develop relationships, talk about their experiences, ask questions, and learn more about Sickle Cell Disease.

Though camp is currently free to all campers it costs $23K to operate the summer camp program, which equates to $575 per child. Please donate through this link to PayPal and contribute to this valuable opportunity for our children.

  • Sponsor a camper for $575
  • Sponsor a craft for $500
