LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Giving kids who are fighting cancer a chance to just be kids again. 

Nearly a hundred kids who have cancer, or are in remission, were treated to a party Sunday before they headed off to Camp Quality in Indiana.

Every child was also given a free cape before getting on the bus to go to camp.

The kids will spend a week having fun and participating in different camp activities.

"It's so important for the kids because know they're in the hospital and getting treatment and this is just an opportunity for them to be kids again," said Stephanie Smith with Kosair Charities.

All the kids received medical check-ups as part of the camp send-off.

This is the 28th year for the event.
