Children attending cancer camp smile at all the fun they have

Wednesday, July 10, 2019 by LOU WHEELAND Special to The Press in Local News

The Pediatric Cancer Foundation of the Lehigh Valley welcomed Lehigh Valley youngsters to its annual Camp Smile June 17 to June 21 at Muhlenberg College, Allentown.

The PCFLV supports children with cancer and their families “with love, hope and smiles.” The free camp engages the youngsters with art, theater, sports, swimming and special guests.

At this year’s camp, each of the 52 campers worked with counselors allowing a nearly one-to-one engagement.

The week ended with each group of campers presenting a play for their parents, families and friends.
