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.

 Hybrid COCAcon
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.
