Providing opportunity for social experiences is a key role for providers working in the pediatric oncology setting. Traditional in-person socialization activities were significantly impacted by coronavirus disease-2019 restrictions, and psychosocial providers were forced to adapt their practice. This case series illustrates four unique scenarios that highlight virtual social interactions as both feasible and beneficial. While virtual socialization groups were intended to be temporary, the experiences described suggest that ongoing video-based options for some socialization activities are likely prudent for some pediatric populations.
