This year’s Camp H-Town theme is “Magic of the Seas,” inspired by favourite children’s movies, and the experiences and characters within them. Campers will enjoy activities at the Hotel and at surrounding city attractions including Movie Night, a Pool Party, Dance Night at House of Blues, and much more.
"As always, we’re excited to welcome the community and Houston’s top chefs for Celebrity Chefs Against Cancer,” says Tom Segesta, General Manager of Four Seasons Hotel Houston. “This event has become one of the year’s most important, impactful, and fun philanthropic events, and we look to set a new fundraising record for these incredible and courageous kids.”

About Camp H-Town
The mission of Camp H-Town is to bring back the joys of childhood to a unique population of children touched by cancer through an urban camp experience at Four Seasons Hotel Houston. During the summer, the Hotel will convert an entire floor into a “campground” with bunk beds and camping gear, in which the campers will stay four nights under the supervision of medical staff from MD Anderson Children’s Cancer Hospital and local volunteers.
