Camps that Care for Kids
Over the years, thousands of volunteers have put in countless hours of sweat equity to make sure the children at our Children’s Hospital of Georgia (CHOG) camps are safe, comfortable, and able to have a camp experience like their more healthy friends.
It is a rewarding but frustrating calling. There are always more needs and wants. The most difficult part has been working with the limitations—the long drive, the sick children and their families who are turned away due to lack of space, the need for more amenities and activities.
With just a small leap of faith, and your support, we can build the CHOG camps into an experience that will continue to make memories for children.
We think you will want to be a part of making this incredible opportunity happen… of making this dream come true. The Children’s Hospital of Georgia at Georgia Regents University is uniquely qualified and positioned to work with its volunteer leaders to create the safest, most comprehensive camp for children with challenges.
CHOG and the Family Y are partnering to raise funds to modify the existing camp so that CHOG kids— kids with cancer, kids with diabetes, kids with joint disorders, kids with heart conditions and kids who have been recently diagnosed with cancer—have access to the same experiences as other Camp Lakeside campers.
