Camp Crescent Moon


July 13-20, 2024

An outdoor weeklong summer camp for children with sickle cell disease ages 7-15.

Camp Crescent Moon is more than just a camp for children with sickle cell disease, Camp Crescent Moon changes lives. All of the campers learn more about sickle cell disease, coping strategies, and standing up for themselves when they are misunderstood because of their disease.
While at camp, the children participate in skill building activities, are exposed to new challenges and have the chance to form very important, life-long friendships. Camp Crescent Moon has been successful because of the dedicated staff which helps each camper become more self-confident and more self-reliant.
As part of the specialized programs and services offered by the Sickle Cell Disease Foundation, the SCDF created the first summer camp for children with sickle cell disease in 1967. 

For more than 50 years, we have provided a memorable camping experience for thousands of children with sickle cell disease.

Unfortunately, this year we cannot guarantee the acceptance of all applicants due to limited space and our Covid-19 policy.

Campers will be notified on June 8th of their acceptance.

​Every camper, volunteer, and staff member attending Camp must provide proof that they are up-to-date on Covid-19 vaccinations.
