This performance is partnering with Camp Hobé, a summer camp for children with cancer (& disorders), to raise funds for this non-profit organization.

Camp Hobé serves kids from Utah, the Intermountain area (Idaho, Wyoming, Nevada), or patients at Primary Children’s Hospital in Salt Lake City, UT. Kids and teens may attend Camp Hobé while being treated for cancer (or similar disorders) and for three camp seasons after completing treatment. Patients’ siblings may also attend during this time. While at Camp Hobé, kids explore the outdoors, discover the joy and freedom of being away from the hospital, and temporarily displace the fears about the future. Attending camp is their chance to “just be kids,” meet others who share their experiences, and escape the grown-up realities they face every day.
