Since the beginning of March 2020, COVID-19 has been a disrupter in all of our lives. We are grateful for everyone’s patience and constant support as we navigated virtual programming over the past year. Double H is excited to take our first steps in returning to onsite programming with the announcement of the 2021 Summer Camp Program. We are eager to start safely welcoming campers, seasonal staff, and volunteers back to their “Home Away from Home.” To learn more about Summer Camp in 2021 and other traditional onsite programs, please visit the links below.
In July and August, the Double H Ranch offers children, age 6-16 during regular session and ages 17-21 during the alumni session, dealing with critical or life-threatening illnesses the chance to experience the magic of the Adirondacks. During each of the 6 Summer Residential Camp sessions, the Double H Ranch comes alive with the sounds of laughter and the joys of childhood. The Double H Ranch provides camp experiences that are medically sound, memorable, exciting, fun and empowering.Learn More
