About COCAcon 2021


Survive and Thrive
COCAcon’s theme this year is Survive and Thrive. We have lined up some great keynote speakers to talk about survivorship and the challenges of childhood cancer. Another aspect of Survive and Thrive we will address is in recognition of what all COCA-I camps experienced in the past year. Join great sessions about surviving and thriving as a camp in these most challenging times.

CELEBRATE your accomplishments, CONNECT and COLLABORATE with your colleagues for 3 days of professional development. LEARN from professionals, and have some fun along the way!

COCAcon 2021 is a carefully crafted experience to connect and engage with your colleagues, network, and learn about the most pressing issues of the day. 

One Event Two Experiences

You have two great choices this year. Come to Houston and attend in-person. If you can't travel to Houston, enjoy COCAcon by attending sessions virtually through live streaming. Learn and interact together at the same time - even when not in the same physical location.
