It's not everyday you're given the opportunity to forget life's challenges- but for one week at Double H, this is exactly what happens! In the fresh air of the Adirondacks, children with life-threatening medical conditions get the chance to enjoy life as it was meant to be.

These programs bring much-needed laughter and excitement to children who are living with medical challenges, and gives them a magical experience that can change their lives forever.
Our campers only get one childhood, so let's do what we can to make this one count! At Double H, we're all the same. And it's the power of your donation that makes this magic come to life.
