The Gilda’s Club children’s program, Noogieland, is especially designed to meet the needs of children touched by cancer. Its name is a humorous reference to a famous bit by Gilda Radner, and is just silly enough to make perfect sense to children whether they know Gilda or not. It is a unique art and activity based program where children can talk about their feelings as they participate in activities.

As Noogieland members, children are full and equal members of the Gilda's Club community. Children who have a loved one living with cancer and children who have cancer themselves deserve a program that addresses their specific needs.

An Interactive Children’s Program

Noogieland is fun, loud, noisy and totally unlike any other child cancer program. Kids have the opportunity to be surrounded by other kids in similar circumstances. Noogieland even has a special category of activities for teens whomconsider themselves too mature for Noogieland, but do not qualify as adult Gilda's Club members.

Camp Open Arms

Camp Open Arms takes place every July and it is a two-week day camp for any child touched by cancer or a blood related disease, including sickle cell anemia. Children living with cancer (or blood related disease) or any child who has a family member living with the disease are welcome to attend. Camp Open Arms also welcomes children who have lost a loved one. The camp's main purpose is to provide campers, including those undergoing treatment, with the opportunity for a normal camping experience, and the chance to spend time with their siblings in a fun, interactive way.
