Finding Strength in Numbers
Survivors Supporting Survivors is a teen group designed for cancer survivors between the ages of 13-18 years old. SSS is designed to offer an opportunity for teens to spend time together, try new activities, have fun, and share experiences about the real-life challenges and celebrations of being a teen with a cancer diagnosis.
The group meets multiple times throughout the year in the Treasure Valley to provide support, resources, education, and empowering experiences. A typical agenda includes introductions, a 15-minute activity to break the ice, and the main event activity.
Previous SSS meetings have included cooking classes, art therapy, yoga, bowling, paddle boarding, glass blowing, roller skating, Shakespeare Festival shows, and a holiday gift exchange.
Join the Club
All we ask is that you be yourself and stay flexible and open to the group. Bring your ideas, your sense of adventure and your enthusiasm, and get ready to make life-long friends who know exactly where you’re coming from.
SSS is open to all teens who have experienced a cancer diagnosis. You do not have to have attended a CRG camp or other program in order to participate. First-timers are always welcome. And, just like all Camp Rainbow Gold services and programs, Survivors Supporting Survivors events are free.
