Since 2013, the Institute’s pediatric cancer program, Cranbrook Cares, has been alleviating the isolation that many young cancer patients and their families feel during treatment through customized programming offered directly at hospitals, and during private events at the Institute.

Several times each year the Institute offers private opportunities to explore science in a sanitized environment when the Institute is closed to the public. Additionally, dynamic summer camp experiences allow campers the chance to enjoy summer and the natural world around them in a safe setting.
