Smile-A-Mile Place (formerly called Camp Smile-A-Mile Place or Camp SAM Place) is a community facility affiliated with Smile-A-Mile, which provides services to children diagnosed with cancer and their families. It occupies the former Jones Sportswear warehouse building at 1600-1604 2nd Avenue South, convenient to clients at Children's Hospital and to activities at Railroad Park.

CCR Architecture & Interiors prepared the design for the facility, which was constructed by B.L. Harbert International for $3.6 million. The 12,500 square-foot building houses a large multi-purpose room, a smaller conference room, a media center, a game room, a meditation room, an exercise facility, a full kitchen and offices. Staff began working at the new building in January 2017 and it held a grand opening for its public programs on March 16 of that year.
