As a former camp counselor and camper, I know how a positive camp experience can transform a child's life. My dream is that children of all abilities will have an opportunity to grow and learn from each other, while experiencing the magic of the outdoors. It is also important to me that we take care of the families that protect our freedoms and keep this country safe.

Through our partnerships we'll be able to welcome military families to our camps year-round.
