Nearly 1,000 Double H campers dealing with a life-threatening illness are counting down the days ‘til their Week in the Woods at the Double H Ranch this summer. About 2% of the $3.3 million annual operating budget the Double H raises each year comes from co-founders, Charley Wood and Paul Newman, while 98% comes from individuals, businesses and organizations. Summer camp is FREE for kids who, due to a medical diagnosis, are unable to attend other summer camps. Your generosity goes a long way in supporting Double H kids; last year 73% percent of our summer campers came from New York State to capture their week of Adirondack adventure.
Adventures include a trail ride on favorite horse Tex in the Happy Barn, a thrilling journey through the trees along the 250 foot zip line at the High Ropes Course, the making of ice cream (yum!) and slime (yuck!) in Discovery, or a first time ever performance on stage in Creative Arts. Campers enjoy the telling of a story around the campfire at Outdoor Adventure, the making of a beautiful pair of silver earrings to surprise mom with in Arts & Crafts, a winning goal kicked in the last 30 seconds of the game at Team Adventure, the catching of 18 fish at the Waterfront or a 7:00 am polar bear swim in the pool.
