We're Going Hybrid this Year!
The best of both worlds! Some participants are able to attend face-to-face while others are "brought in virtually". Attendees can participate from wherever they sit in the world - either in-person or online.
Why a Hybrid Conference?
A key committment of COCA-I is to deliver content to everyone involved with your camp. By offering portions of the conference content virtually, for a small registration fee you can expose many more members of your camp staff, volunteers, medical staff and counselors.

A pediatric cancer survivor himself, Dr. Gorlick committed his life’s work to helping young patients and their families. For more than two decades, his research and clinical efforts have centered on sarcomas. His early involvement in the Children’s Oncology Group (COG) established the founding Bone Tumor Resource Laboratory, which has become a national resource and home to the world’s largest osteosarcoma tissue bank.

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.
Attendees will be able to join this year's conference in-person in Houston, TX or virtually. This hybrid conference will provide an opportunity to include more people from your organization! It will provide connection, networking and professional development to help members expand their knowledge and excel in their abilities to provide excellent programs for children with cancer and their families.
