Camp Smile-A-Mile’s Mission:
Camp Smile-A-Mile’s mission is to provide year round challenging,unforgettable recreational and educational experiences for young cancer patients, their families as well as young adult survivors from Alabama at no cost to the families. Our purpose is to provide these patients, families and survivors with avenues for fellowship, to help them cope with their disease, and to prepare them for life after cancer.

About Camp Smile-A-Mile:
Camp Smile-A-Mile (Camp SAM) was established in 1985 to serve the children of Alabama battling cancer while also being a source of support for their families. Starting with a single, week-long camp that welcomed patients of all ages, Camp SAM has grown to include year-round programming and seven camp sessions each summer. We are the only pediatric oncology camp in the state to offer such extensive programming for the entire family. In addition, we have developed a scholarship program for campers attending universities and vocational schools. Camp SAM’s office is located in Birmingham and neighbors Children’s of Alabama. Camp SAM’s permanent campsite for summer sessions is located at Children’s Harbor on Lake Martin. Children’s Harbor donates the use of their facility. Since its inception 30 years ago, Camp SAM has steadily expanded its reach, now welcoming more than 450 campers from throughout the state each summer. Hundreds more children and their families participate in our other year-round programming. Camp is free-of-charge to the families and transportation is provided from Children’s of Alabama to the campsite. Camp Smile-A-Mile is a 501(c)(3) organization.
