welcome to camp breastie

A four-day summit where hundreds of people impacted by breast and gynecologic cancer come together for community, patient advocacy, and education. 
Think of Camp Breastie as the ultimate getaway designed by community members for community members. It’s a weekend rooted in information sharing and community cultivation with your comfort, diverse experiences, and interests in mind. 
Are you wanting to meet someone else going through a similar diagnosis or high-risk experience? Do you want to engage with panels and workshops led by experts, community leaders, and advocates? Have you been wanting to treat yourself or spend more time in nature? Then this is the place for you. 
Camp Breastie will be a weekend-long experience with a variety of different community-building, educational, story-sharing, art, and athletic activities for you to choose from. (Yes, you get to choose your own adventure each day!) 
The Breasties commitment to supporting stage 4 cancer research was born at Camp Breastie in 2019. This year, we’re proud to share that funds raised at Camp Breastie 2023 will support The Breasties annual $50,000 stage 4 research grant.

We are also offering help by creating fundraising platforms for any Breastie who wants to raise money to cover the cost of Camp. All additional money contributed on fundraising platforms will be donated to stage 4 cancer research. Please email us with any questions at .gro.seitsaerbeht%40pmac
