SeriousFun Children's Network is a global community of 30 camps and programs for seriously ill children.[1] All camps and programs offer free recreational experiences to children with serious illnesses and their family members.[2][3] The first SeriousFun camp was launched in 1988 by founder Paul Newman.

SeriousFun camps and programs serve children living with over 50+ medical conditions, including those with cancer, HIV/AIDS, sickle cell disease, endocrine disorders, orthopedic conditions, and severe asthma.[4] Since 1988, SeriousFun camps and programs have served over 732,306 children and their family members from over forty countries.[5]
