On the Rise / Colon Camp

Colorectal cancer (CRC) is on the rise! The Colon Club’s annual publication, On The Rise, highlights issues that impact young CRC survivors and features stories from caregivers and survivors who were diagnosed before age 45.

In order to grow the number of advocates raising awareness, we select a diverse group of people searching for their voice to attend a retreat and photo shoot (lovingly referred to as Colon Camp). Our featured survivors/caregivers have the opportunity to connect with others, become strong advocates for colorectal cancer, and help raise awareness about The Colon Club’s resources and projects. They become the voices and faces for young CRC survivors. 

Completed applications must be submitted by January 31, 2021. 

Please note: Although Colon Camp is currently scheduled, we may have to cancel the retreat, subject to Covid-19 restrictions. The health and safety of our community is our greatest concern. In the event of cancellation, we will have an alternate plan for those selected.
