Who We Are
In mid 2002, a small group of central Kentuckians founded a non-profit (501(c)(3)), recruited a board of directors, began seeking donations and started looking for land. The result is now a 191-acre property located in Kentucky’s Boyle and Mercer Counties that will provide permanent camping facilities necessary for children whose health is compromised. The site includes cabins, a fully-equipped medical clinic, open air pavilion, a dining hall, and additional activity areas including a pool, rock climbing wall, fishing, boating, basketball court, archery, and accessible swinging bridge.

Who We Serve
Children from throughout Kentucky and surrounding states with illnesses including cancer, diabetes, asthma, sickle cell anemia, kidney disease, AIDs, heart ailments, special needs or other illnesses will utilize the camp. CHA will offer a family camping center as well as support services for families. And, through collaborations with the University of Kentucky’s Children’s Hospital and Hospice of the Bluegrass, the camp will also offer special programs for children with obesity issues, for those who have lost a loved one to terminal illness and for siblings of ill children.

right here in Kentucky” *Eddie Montgomery, Honorary Chair
