Family Camp Weekend. Sponsored by KOA Care Camps and VisionWorks Inc

VisionWorks Family Camp is a weekend experience for families of children who are battling cancer. The experience takes place at YMCA Camp Flaming Arrow in the Texas Hill Country. All who attended are able to hike, ride horses, canoe, slide down a 50 foot slide into the Guadalupe River, swim, eat s’ mores by a campfire, play volleyball, climb the Challenge Course, and most of all just be in each other’s company. There are so many activities for the children, and even some alone time for the parents. A great time will be had by all! This weekend would not be possible without our awesome volunteer crew, and the financial support of KOA Care Camps.

The families who attended this weekend are very appreciative of this opportunity and are reminded that they were not alone in their circumstances. It is great to see families who had not met each other before hanging out with each other, playing with each other, dining with each other, and realizing that they were indeed battling cancer together.
