A Kids ‘N’ Cancer Ministry, Camp Agape. Two small words, yet they are full of power and love. For over 35 years, Camp Agape has been a signature ministry for the Metropolis of San Francisco Philoptochos, and not even the Coronavirus pandemic could stop the love that is shared unconditionally with children who are battling cancer and their families. The Metropolis Philoptochos Board and Chapter members quickly mobilized so that these special families did not miss out on the opportunity to participate in Camp Agape and established a virtual format. And while we have sadly lost many of our campers to cancer over nearly four decades, we also celebrate the survivors – the thrivers – who have conquered the mountain called cancer and continue to live life to its fullest. It is a privilege to work with the Philoptochos ladies and men (with many new faces!), over 100 volunteers strong, to serve, love and grow our Camp Agape family!

We continued our support by reimagining Camp Agape this year and offered a modified experience. Agape care packages were sent to children filled with special items from their wish lists and hosted various in-person Christmas parties throughout the Metropolis offering holiday spirit, friendship and lo ve . There are families who have especially struggled during the pandemic that may need help with medical expenses. And sadly, there are those whose young souls will be called to the Lord, and we make sure they receive a dignified funeral. In 2022, we plan to resume our traditional Camp Agape programs with two camps in California, one in Arizona, and one in Oregon, the need is great.

Can we count on you to give your heart to a child?
