VIRTUAL – Camp Youngblood Information Session

Are you thinking about sending your child to Camp Youngblood at Camp Holiday Trails for the first time in 2023, or would you just like a refresher on the camp experience? Join VHF, HACA and CHT for a virtual information session to learn more about camp – even if you aren’t quite ready to send your kids this year.

What to expect: CHT Director of Programs Caitlin Carroll will talk more about camp activities and facilities; longtime Camp Youngblood parent and nurse Amy Walker (VHF) will address the medical accommodations and her experiences as a camp parent; and parents Bethany and Todd Swain (HACA) will share their personal experiences with sending their son to camp. This virtual session will be a great opportunity to learn and ask questions.
