They're doing all of those and more at a summer camp this week in Stewartsville.
Taylor C. was diagnosed with lymphoma five years ago, when she was only nine.
"I woke up and I had a lump right here at my neck. I asked my mom if it was normal (I had been feeling it for a while) and then she felt it and she said 'That's not normal,'" Taylor says as she tells her story.
At the time, she spent a month in the hospital, eventually going through chemotherapy.
Now, her cancer is in remission and she only sees the doctor once a year.
Taylor has come to Camp Quality, in Stewartsville, just like she's done since her diagnosis.
"There are dances here every night and talent shows. I like to dance and sing," Taylor said.
Camp Quality brings children with cancer together for a whole week.
And they get to do all the typical summer camp activities: fishing, archery, horseback riding, arts and crafts.
Every camper has a companion that makes sure they stay safe and have fun.
Taylor's companion is Heidi Beatty, who's volunteered at Camp Quality for ten years.
"I feel like I have something to give. No matter what camp brings at me, I feel like I have more to give. And these kids have more to give too. When we both give, I don't know. It's magical," Beatty said.
And Taylor says she looks forward to camp every year, because it gives her a chance to be with kids who understand what she's gone through in her fight with cancer.
"I don't have to worry about it. I can just relax. When I did have cancer, I would look at other people who didn't and I would think that they see me differently. I didn't want that. Here, they don't see you differently," she said.
Camp Quality is now in its 26th year here in northwest Missouri.
