Outreach Program

 

The goal of Double H Ranch’s Outreach Program is to improve the quality of life for children and families in the community, hospital, or medical-based settings by bringing the magic of camp to them! The program offers a time of laughter, creativity, hope, friendship, and encouragement to children whose lives are disrupted and fractured by illness.

Recently, the Outreach Program has made a successful return into the hospital setting with visits to Children’s Hospital at Dartmouth, Albany Medical Center, and Pathways Rehabilitation Center. We’ve also hosted an evening out for Double H volunteers at an Adirondack Thunder hockey game, organized crafts for kids at several Saratoga Farmer’s Markets, and brought camp activities to Riverside Park, NYC for a Spring in the City event. In the coming season, we are excited to continue expanding access to camp! This fall, we will be hosting a Prom event at Double H for alumni campers aged 21 and older, adding hospital visits to partners in both Rochester and New York City, and hope to organize future events at museums, zoos, aquariums, and more!

Let’s glow camping!

This September, the Double H Outreach Program will be hosting our first ever camp Prom. We’re planning a day of special events for all previous Double H campers aged 21 years and older. Spend the afternoon participating in fun workshops, like cooking and flower arranging, and returning to your favorite camp activity areas, like archery, arts & crafts, and the waterfront. Then enjoy an evening of dinner and dancing under the stars. We hope you’ll join us this fall to reconnect with friends and make new camp memories together!
