Welcome to Mitch’s Mission


Our Mission:  Send kids with cancer to camp!

Kids and camp. . . what better way for a kid to spend time in the summer. Mitch’s Mission believes that all kids should get to experience the joys and freedom of summer camp no matter their medical circumstances. 

Our Kids:

The children Mitch’s Mission helps are patients of Cincinnati Children Hospital Medical Center (CCHMC) Cancer and Blood Diseases Institute. The camp is called Camp NJoyItAll and is held at Camp Joy located north of Cincinnati, Ohio. The camp is staffed with doctors and nurses from Cincinnati Children’s.




Playdate with the Bearcats

Playdate with the Bearcats
Sunday, February 11, 2018   
2pm to 5pm

UC Rec Center on the University of Cincinnati Main Campus.

2820 Bearcat Way, Cincinnati, OH 45221

Mitch’s Mission’s signature event, Playdate with the Bearcats, is a family-fun day for kids of all ages.

Hang out with UC athletes and enjoy the amenities of the beautiful UC Rec Center including swimming, rock-climbing and basketball. Face painting & games for younger kids, too!

What kid wouldn’t want a chance to shoot hoops with some of their favorite UC athletes? How about a game of cornhole? Autographs anyone? Or, challenge your friends to “minute to win it” type games of skill.

Younger kids can exchange high-fives with the UC Bearcat Mascot, play fun carnival games and get their face-painted by a UC athlete.

Adults, we did not forget about you.  Our food court is a great place for socializing and you will have fun bidding on fabulous items in the silent auction and raffle.  When we say family fun, we mean it!

Besides all of that, Playdate participants have access to amenities of the beautiful UC Rec Center, including swimming in the lazy river (don’t forget to bring a towel!), rock-climbing and basketball.  

How much for all of this family fun?

Only $20 per person or $60 for a family of 4 . . . what a deal!

And, all the proceeds help Mitch’s Mission send kids with cancer and blood diseases to summer camp.

If you really want to help (and have even more fun), don’t forget to stuff your pockets with some extra cash for the silent auction, raffle and food tickets.  Or, make it easy and pay for all of your tickets ahead of time when you pre-register.

Come play and send a kid with cancer to camp!
