We use adventure-based experiences such as surfing, outrigger canoeing, standup paddling, skiing, and snowboarding, as channels of healing and renewal to treat the mind, body, and soul. Project Koru's programs aim to help young survivors not just survive, but thrive in all aspects of life with and after cancer.

Coming to camp depressed, it was hard for me to see myself and the world around me clearly. Cancer isolated me, kept me inside rooms, and made me question so much of what I had and who I was. Camp did not pretend to be a magical cure; I was never expected to have a great day, to exclaim how lucky I was, or pretend to be happy. Camp just gently asked me to show up, bring whatever I had, and to keep trying. I kept falling, and camp just asked me to keep getting up on my board again.”
