More than fun-filled, cost-free Adventures

Since 1995, we’ve been providing hope, happiness, and healing for children with life-threatening conditions and their families.

We help them gain back moments of positive, family-shared experiences through Adventures. Each Adventure is designed for the entire family with a new one hosted each month. The Adventures create opportunities for everyone to just be a kid again.

When you enroll and attend an Adventure, your family receives free admission for each immediate family member, a memento for every child, and in nearly all cases, a family meal.

There is never a cost to participate.

Because of the generous support of community partners and donors, we remove that worry from your mind. So come be a kid again. Enroll today.

“This life is tough and complicated. To have a chance to escape it in a safe atmosphere and environment with people who understand and ‘get it’ is priceless. Truly life-giving for so many families!”

What makes A Kid Again unique?


We focus on serving the entire immediate family, not just the child with the life-threatening condition. We understand that the difficult medical journey is one that affects everyone in the family.

Our programming is continuous. One-time experiences are wonderful, but research shows that a family needs consistent, ongoing support as they navigate challenging times. A Kid Again offers an Adventure at least once a month so there is always something to look forward to. As our families often state: the anticipation for the next Adventure creates hope for the whole family.

The open-arms community A Kid Again creates is important to families. Families need to know they are not going through their medical journey alone. They have other A Kid Again families to turn to for support through their regular interactions at Adventures.

We are condition inclusive. We serve kids with conditions such as cancer, cystic fibrosis, rare genetic disorders, among hundreds of others. For some families, their child’s condition is so unique that there is not another organization out there providing them support.

A Kid Again costs nothing to join and nothing to participate in.
