To work towards our vision of engaging more campers with medical needs, and to maximize the safety of our campers and staff, we have innovating and engaging offerings.
CHT Everywhere: Pop-Up Camps – we take the camp show on the road! A CHT van/camper will take camp counselors and camp activities to partners throughout the Mid-Atlantic region for short, small group camps in outdoor spaces. We reach both existing and new campers and bring the CHT spirit to children and teens with medical needs, where they are.
