Candlelighters Family Activities

We are in the business of helping families connect and make memories.

We offer family activities across Oregon and SW Washington at no cost to families dealing with pediatric cancer. Candlelighters families are part of a close knit community, where together, they are able to put aside challenges, and just be with other families who get it. As a result, many have made life long friends built on countless hours of comeraderie. One family favorite is family camp, a weekend where kids and adults can bring their silly and their serious – watch the video for some goofy takes on camp songs.
 Activities are offered throughout our Chapters around the state of Oregon, and in SW Washington. Subscribe to our bi-monthly newsletter for family activities, FAMILY Connections,  and join us!
