Where did the name Bangarang Come from?
Why Camp Bangarang?
We often get asked this question.
You may remember the word “Bangarang” from the movie Hook, being yelled by the lost boys when something was awesome. You may know that before that it was a Jamaican slang term for causing mischief. We wanted our camps name to mean different things to different people. Maybe it is just awesome! Perhaps it’s a place where kids with life-threatening illnesses can (safely) cause a little mischief! It can also be a sanctuary for families, a place to meet friends, a break from the challenges of a serious medical diagnosis. Bangarang can feel like home and a vacation at the same time! So there it is, we hope you get involved and find your Bangarang!!!!
