Camp Carefree

Since 1986, Camp Carefree has provided a FREE, one-week camping experience for kids with chronic illnesses. Our program also includes camps for well siblings of ill children and a week for children with a sick parent.


The N.C. Elks and many individual lodges are incredibly supportive and generous to our Camp! Through their fundraising and events like the annual gala, they have donated more than $150,000 to Camp in recent years.
