Make a Difference.


Our Mission:

We strive to develop Character, Coping, and Connection for kids battling life-threatening illnesses.


The Cavett Kids Foundation…

is a community where illness does not define the child.

We offer camps and year-round programs completely FREE of charge, for kids with chronic and life-threatening illnesses. Our programs allow them to have fun while also connecting to others with similar medical conditions.

Our programs are free for kids to attend because of the generous support of our donors.

Our programs include kids with a wide range of serious illnesses, including heart disease, cancer, cystic fibrosis, Crohn’s disease, kidney failure, and much more.

Whether newly diagnosed or many years into the journey, we invite you to become part of the Cavett Kids family.

Cavett Kids in their own words…

Our Values

Hope. Encouragement. Acceptance. Perspective. Trust.
