Youth & Families

The first place cancer metastasis is to the family. Youth are affected by having cancer themselves, as well as when a close friend or family member has a cancer diagnosis. Our Youth and Family programs are intended to provide a place of support and sense of community for the whole family.

*Note – All families look a little different and we let you define what family is to you.  If a program has an age requirement or restriction it will be listed on the calendar description.

 

Kid’s Corner These educational, emotional support, exercise, mindfulness, and social programs are designed to specifically support kids under 18 who are impacted by cancer in their family or a personal diagnosis.  Call to register your child up to receive a bi-monthly calendar with kids corner programs and information.

Kid’s Corner Intro Reduce anxiety about joining future programs and learn if CSC is right for your kids by coming to CSC for a tour of the building, personalized activity for your child or family with the Youth Director, and a snack (of course).  Call to schedule a time to meet.

Kid Support This adult-led, peer support program is offered for children ages 4 to 12 that have been impacted by a cancer diagnosis.

Family Camps Take a weekend to re-connect with your family, find support with other families impacted by cancer, learn individual and family coping skills to navigate the challenging times, and celebrate the joys of being a Montanan while we play outside, make art, and eat some s’mores around a fire together.  Join us at camp Mak-A-Dream in Gold Creek, Montana for a weekend you and your family won’t forget!

*Families must be Montanans and include at least one member under the age of 18.  We encourage all interested participants to apply, however some retreat facilities are not able to accommodate all applicants.  Priority will be given to first-time attendees, and individual participant need. Applications and dates will be updated as they become available.
