Care Camps hired Tyler Carter as the organization’s new development director.

Care Camps is a national non-profit organization that funds medically supervised pediatric oncology camps across North America.

Carter previously was the assistant director of development at Nationwide Children’s Hospital in Columbus, Ohio. Carter was among the hospital’s key representatives who cultivated strategic partnerships and helped the hospital’s foundation raise over $50 million annually.

Care Camps said Carter also brings leadership and development experience working with children’s camps through the YMCA.

“We are thrilled to have Tyler join our team and help us to expand our mission and fundraising efforts,” said Gwynn Sullivan, Care Camps executive director. “He is a wonderful complement to our existing talented team and his expertise will be of great benefit to support our existing partners and develop new partnerships.”

Carter replaces Care Camps’ previous development director, Jennifer Mercer.

In 2022, Care Camps raised over $3.5 million to support its mission and fund pediatric oncology camps. Since its inception, Care Camps has raised more than $24 million.

“We are grateful for the established legacy of financial support from our partners within the outdoor industry and other businesses, foundations, and individuals,” said Wade Elliott, Care Camps board of directors chairman. “We are confident Tyler will help us leverage and increase our philanthropic goals so more children living with cancer and their families can benefit.”

Historically, Care Camps was started by a group of Kampgrounds of America campground owners who began fundraising to support pediatric oncology camps in 1984. To learn more, join the legacy of giving, and be inspired, visit
