What Your Donation Means to Campers and Families:
“When my younger sister returned home from her week at Double H it was like she saw life through a new lens. Her favorite memory was at the high ropes course, where counselors and fellow campers cheered her on as she made her way up to the zip-line. In that moment, she forgot about her illness- forgot about what made her different from other kids her age. Cherishing the unconditional support that surrounded her; finding the strength she needed to feel optimistic about tomorrow; being reminded of all the good this world has to offer! It was as if- for a fleeting moment in time- her condition had vanished, and nothing was holding her back. No IVs, no hospital beds, no blood tests- just the harness around her waist, the sound of campers cheering her on, and the wish that this moment could last forever. Her childhood would not have been complete without the generous donations that made that week at Double H possible.”
