Raccoon Camp Cards Review

“Hello mother…Hello father…” summer is right around the corner and as the end of school draws near there is one thing on every kid’s mind—camp!  This year, as parents pack up camp duffels, they can ensure their active camper stays in touch with new cards from the Children’s Art Project at The University of Texas M. D. Anderson Cancer Center.

With the new Raccoon Camp Cards, parents can create a correspondence kit by just adding stamps and a pen.  The cards offer plenty of writing space and showcase an original design created by a young M. D. Anderson pediatric cancer patient named Elisabeth.  For as little as $7 for a pack of 10 cards, campers can stay in touch all summer-long.  The cards can be purchased online at and through mail order catalogue. 

For the past 36 years, the Children’s Art Project has created seasonal and other one-of-a-kind gift and stationery items inspired by the designs of young cancer patients undergoing treatment at M. D. Anderson. All proceeds from the sale of seasonal and year-round Children’s Art Project products fund quality of life programs for pediatrics patients at the Children’s Cancer Hospital at M. D. Anderson.

Every summer, CAP sponsors summer camp programs that are worth writing home about.  Camp Star Trails for ages 5-12 and Camp A.O.K. (Anderson’s Older Kids) for ages 13-18 are both overnight summer camp programs that allow young cancer patients to enjoy all the traditional activities of summer camp with the advantage of having their medical needs taken care of at the same time.  To date, the Children’s Art Project has returned more than $24.5 million to support summer camps, ski trips, art classes and college scholarships – adding zest, normalcy and promise to young lives interrupted by cancer.

I received a pack of the above delightful Camp Cards for review. The artwork on the card was designed by a child who is a patient at MD Anderson Cancer Center. Sales benefit the emotional, educational, and recreational needs of patients. Proceeds from the cards also go to benefit Camp Star Trails and Camp AOK so MD Anderson patients can have a camp experience of their own.

I just love the illustration on the card, you can tell the child who drew the raccoon and owls has real talent! The cards are printed on thick paper so they are durable and will survive in your child's camp bag. The pack comes with envelopes so your child can mail the card from camp. 

Thanks to the Children's Art Project for the sample! Visit today to order the Camp Cards and tons of other merch.
