This past weekend was the 2013 COCA-I Conference, hosted by Camp Courage in Greenville, South Carolina. Once a year, oncology camps from across North America and beyond gather together to share resources and presentations, and build relationships with other camps across the world. It’s also a chance for the camps to be recognized for their hard work and accomplishments in the annual COCA-I awards!
