At Ronald McDonald House Charities of Southern California, we express our mission through our programs, which include seven Ronald McDonald Houses in Bakersfield, Inland Empire, Long Beach, Los Angeles, Orange County, Pasadena and Westside of Los Angeles. We operate two Ronald McDonald Family Rooms at CHOC Children's Hospital in Orange and CHOC Children's at Mission Hospital. We are developing a new Family Room in Ventura, at the Ventura County Medical Center, and a new House near the UCLA/Mattel Children's Hospital on the Westside Los Angeles. We are one of the only Ronald McDonald House Charities chapters across the world that operates a cost-free, medically-supervised Camp for children with cancer and their families, Camp Ronald McDonald for Good Times.
Camp launched our first ever Campfire Concert Series! Tune in for live music weekly on Thursdays at 5:30pm PST, which began July 16th! This summer, we are reuniting our community through music to raise spirits and funds for our Camp at Home alternative program supporting children with cancer and their families. Join us each week for a new featured artist to participate live in fun challenges and the chance to interact with them to help us reach our fundraising goal of $100,000 by our final Campfire Concert in September for Childhood Cancer Awareness Month!
We have an amazing lineup of inspiring artists and talent who will bring the healing power of music & entertainment to our Camp families and YOU, our supporters.

Aired August 1, 2020. On the show: Lisa Foxx chats with Executive Director Fatima Rodriguez discussing all the ways this wonderful organization offers this 'healing camp' for kids with cancer and their families, shifting how they do what they do, since COVID-19 changed everything in March. They've been able to have tremendous success and support with their now virtual programs, while engaging kids and families from home with the help of their incredibly enthusiastic and dedicated team of counselors and supporters like us! Always seeking donations, especially to help fund their "Camp In A Box" program and then some. Thank you Fatima, and everyone who helps these sweet kids!!
