Camp @ HHome Fall Family Programs 2020
Illuminate Your Path with Camp@HHome
We are excited to announce the theme of this year’s programming – Illuminate Your Path! This year’s theme will serve as the guiding light to help bring the magic of the Double H Ranch to our campers and families. Our alternative and virtual programming will give our campers and families the ability to connect with each other and make camp memories in new ways.
This Fall, spend the weekend connecting with other families and Double H staff, while participating in your favorite camp activities redesigned for home.
Qualifying campers must be between the ages of 5-21 years old with a medical diagnosis of Cancer, Collagen Vascular Disease, CAH, Hemophilia/von Willebrands, Inflammatory Bowel Disease, Immune Disorder/HIV, Mitochondrial Disease, Neuromuscular Disorders or Sickle Cell Anemia.
Each virtual Fall Weekend is made up of two important parts:
@HHome Activities: Access a collection of camp games and activities! Recreate camp classics, including make your own ice cream, or discover new ideas that can be done at home with common household materials. The collection will be updated throughout the fall, so you can find new resources even after your weekend is over.
Virtual Events: Safely connect virtually with families and counselors! Throughout the weekend, Double H staff and volunteers will host a series of virtual camp events. Just like traditional weekends, we’ll kick things off with an opening campfire and end with a talent show.
