The Caring Cabin

Since 2006, CCA has offered the healing power of nature to families through free-of-charge retreats at the secluded Alexandra Ellis Caring Cabin® in Pacific City, Oregon, providing children in treatment and their extended families with an essential health connection to nature and healing. Nestled in 24 acres of surrounding woods with plentiful wildlife and a serene lake, the Caring Cabin is an extraordinary place to retreat, relax, and create once-in-a lifetime memories outside of the hospital environment.

CCA’s Caring Cabin was built with the love and dedication of friends, foundations, and businesses that donated nearly one million dollars in cash, goods and services, and even the land itself.

Nearly 4,000 family members have visited since we first opened the Caring Cabin’s doors. This free adventure helps restore the energy and hope kids need to battle their illness over the long haul.

“We loved roasting S’mores on the fire pit–just being together without any distractions, enjoying freshly roasted marshmallows and being outside in a peaceful and beautiful setting, and seeing the happiness in everyone’s face.”

-Gideon’s family
