The Me-One Foundation is a nonprofit volunteer-operated organization dedicated to providing adult cancer patients and their families a respite from the disease where they can be victorious, even if temporarily, over cancer, with the goal of keeping life’s scoreboard at cancer–zero, Me-one.
Their annual weekend camp is a no-cost retreat for families afflicted by cancer and in need of a place of joy and relaxation that will help them disconnect from their diagnosis and recharge their relationships.
Camp Wieser is named after the Roseville family who started Me-One after their experience with cancer, and it is not about roughing it. The camp is about being completely cared for in an inspiring natural setting, and leaving behind the stressful routine of doctor visits and treatments. Guests enjoy comfortable, hotel-style housing with private bathrooms for each family. Hearty, healthy, buffet-style meals are prepared on-site.

Campers and their families participate in a range of activities including games and sports; dancing; singing; skits; arts and crafts; and fireside chats. An on-site spa provides pampering in many forms such as massages, manicures, pedicures and hair styling.
This year’s camp will be held July 7 through 9 at the Mission Springs Conference Center in Scotts Valley, California.
