NFPA Convention Charity

Camp Ta-Kum-TaPlease support this year’s charity, Camp Ta-Kum-Ta  by donating $5 (or more if you choose) to wear your best blue jeans on Friday, October 21.   

Camp Ta-Kum-Ta began in 1984, the vision of Ted and Debby Kessler, parents of a cancer survivor, and Sheara Billado, a child oncology nurse in Vermont, who all witnessed children traveling long distances for this type of childhood experience (or miss it altogether).  While the area in which the Camp now resides is rich in Native American history, the Camp name evolved uniquely, from a child… A young patient receiving cancer treatment at the University of Vermont Medical Center was asked by a care provider what she would like to do that summer.  The patient responded, “I would like a Camp ta-come-ta”—in a sweet voice.  And Camp Ta-Kum-Ta was born!  That young patient is now one of many survivors volunteering on staff!

Camp Ta-Kum-Ta provides challenging, extraordinary experiences in a safe and loving environment for children who have or had cancer, and their families.  Camp exists for Vermont and Northern New York children, (including other out-of-state children who are treated in Vermont), between the ages of 7-17, at no cost to their families.  Camp TKT has become a year-round camp, serving the child who has cancer AND his or her family through not only summer programs, but also a Moms’ Retreat, Siblings programs, and reunions of older campers.

Camp Ta-Kum-Ta puts smiles on these children’s faces, warms their heart and fills a room with laughter,  It is truly a place of healing that every child needs–it is a place that gives them their childhood back!
