Special Love for Children with Cancer Summer Camp

31 Center Drive, Box 2062
Bethesda, MD 20892




Special Love is a nonprofit organization that provides cancer families a network of support, made up of other patients and families who know and understand the trials and triumphs of the cancer experience.

Special Love is the result of Tom and Sheila Baker's desire to establish a support group for children with cancer and to honor their daughter who lost her battle against the deadly disease. In 1983, the Bakers began their organization with a week of summer fun called Camp Fantastic which has grown into a year full of events, with over 15 week and weekend retreats and special outings.

Special Love is dependent on private donations. Donations are tax-deductible and can be in the form of program sponsorships or camper scholarships.
