Celebrating Our First Fall Family Camp Weekend Season

We just wrapped up an incredible first-ever Fall Family Camp season. During our four weekend sessions, held from late September through early November, we hosted 48 fantastic families, which included 180 campers of all ages. Many thanks to our all-star team of dedicated volunteers: We couldn’t have done it without you!

We’re also very grateful for the many heart-warming notes of thanks we’ve received from our camp families, including a letter from The Lentine Family (pictured above), who joined us Nov. 11-13 for our Cardiology Family Camp. “Attending family camp was an experience of a lifetime,” they wrote to us recently. “Our main goal was to convince our daughter to come to summer camp–mission accomplished! As a family, we gained so much more. We connected with each other and with others in ways that will stick us us for forever! Thank you for everything.”
