Summertime means fun time for kids, but that isn't always the case for every child. Many children are precluded from attending summer camp due to the seriousness of their illness, but the camp at the Double H Ranch is able to provide a safe experience for each child because doctors and nurses are on site at their camp 24 hours a day, with a staffed and equipped medical facility and a close relationship with Albany Medical Center. Children with the following diagnoses fill their camp with joy and laughter each year:
Sickle Cell Anemia
Collagen Vascular Disease
Inflammatory Bowel Disease
The mission of the Double H Ranch is to provide specialized programs and year-round support for children and their families dealing with life-threatening illnesses. Their purpose is to enrich their lives and provide camp experiences that are memorable, exciting, fun, empowering, physically safe and medically sound. All programs are FREE of charge and capture the magic of the Adirondacks.
Help support this incredible program at their 24th Annual Gala at The Great Escape and Splashwater Kingdom on Saturday, June 27th with delicious appetizers, cocktails and a silent auction, a “Spaghetti Western” themed buffet and culinary treasures provided by Mazzone Hospitality, and a spirited live auction. Plus you get to hit the park and go on all the rides, NO LINES!
No babysitter? No problem! You can bring the kids along for the fun because Double H Ranch is all about the kids – and the Gala is no exception! Qualified volunteers are available to supervise children ages 6-12. Older children receive all the same fun but none of the supervisions, unless so desired.
This event is always a sell-out so don't wait to get tickets, and please RSVP to the 24th Annual Double H Ranch Gala by June 20th! Click here to purchase your tickets and for more information, and we will see you there!
