Adult Cancer Camp

Camp Bluebird offers a unique experience for adult cancer patients ages 18 and older. Amidst the beauties of nature, campers are provided a creative, educational atmosphere of support. The three-day, two-night camp is held twice each year (once in the spring and once in the fall) at Lakeshore Methodist Assembly Camp in Eva, Tennessee, about 70 miles from Jackson-Madison County General Hospital. Tennessee Camp Bluebird is sponsored by Jackson-Madison County General Hospital and the West Tennessee Healthcare Foundation with funding and support from local businesses.

The purpose of the camp is to encourage:

  • A time for listening and learning
  • A time for sharing and caring
  • Analysis of lifestyle adjustments in living with cancer
  • Family support: how to give and take it
  • Assessment of non-medical needs and ways to meet those needs
  • Educational assistance for medically related concerns
  • Management of cancer treatments and their side effects
  • Nutritional information
  • Creative outlets through the use of arts and crafts

To learn more about the camp, download the brochure.
