Camp Holiday Trails was established in 1973 to provide campers with medical needs a fun and engaging camp experience. Developing community, connections, leadership skills and self-esteem are our major goals. Our philosophy is Camper First and our strength is in welcoming campers with multiple diagnoses to our Camp to learn from each other. A strong partnership with the University of VA medical center ensures a well-staffed Med Korner. CHT provides mixed diagnoses sessions as well as diagnoses specific sessions including an Inherited Bleeding Disorder Week, a Diabetes Week, and a Juvenile Arthritis Week.
