Camp Jinka is a free summer day program offered in collaboration with the David S. Zocchi Brain Tumor Center at Monmouth Medical Center in Long Branch, New Jersey, to kids and teens whose lives have been impacted by a loved one’s diagnosis of a brain tumor.


Children attending camp have a loved one that is battling a brain tumor or has passed away from one. This unique camp offers creative indoor and outdoor activities that encourage expression and connection with others having a similar life experience.


Camp Jinka is held at Middletown Arts Center in Middletown, New Jersey at 9:00am-3:00pm Monday through Friday, from July 7-25 and offers campers the choice of coming to individual weeks or all three.
