One Step to visit February 24-28 will mark the 15th year that Chicago’s One Step at a Time Camp, a program operated by the Children’s Oncology Services, Inc. will visit the National Ability Center. Many children between the ages of 10-19 years old acquired a physical disability as a result of their cancer treatment, and the camps offer outdoor recreation without interrupting necessary medical attention. This year over 25 kids from Chicago, Northern Indiana, Wisconsin, and Illinois will hit the slopes to enjoy Utah’s famous snow and world class terrain with the National Ability Center. In addition to 4 days of skiing, One Step’s participants will have the opportunity to take part in other programs including the Ice Rocket at the Utah Olympic Park and sleigh rides. Children from ages 10-19 years old with all different forms of cancer will attend the camp. A volunteer staff of 15 adults, including their parents and volunteers will accompany and participate in the program.
