Rest and Refuge, Hugs and Laughter


Camp Wieser 2024

The Wieser family’s dream of giving adult cancer patients and their loved ones a weekend to leave all the stress of their cancer battle behind, focus on living life, enjoying each other, and connecting with others, LIVES ON! Camp Wieser 2024 will be held September 13-15 so be sure to subscribe to the foundation’s e-newsletter for information on how to apply to attend camp or be a volunteer.

What Is Camp Wieser?

Camp Wieser offers families with an adult battling cancer an opportunity to rediscover joy, celebrate life, and create lasting memories. It provides a safe haven, free from demands and expectations, where adult cancer patients and their families can momentarily disconnect from the seriousness of the illness and engage in fun activities. This annual weekend retreat, held in the Santa Cruz mountains of Northern California, allows participants to join as many or as few activities as they wish, all led by our compassionate Me-One volunteers. Best of all, thanks to the generosity of our donors and sponsors, it’s completely free for the cancer warriors and their loved ones.
