Camp Holiday Trails Celebrates 40th Anniversary

Posted: Updated:
ALBEMARLE COUNTY, Va (WVIR) -

An Albemarle County camp that serves kids with special medical needs is celebrating its 40th anniversary.

Around 250 people came out Saturday to celebrate 40 years of Camp Holiday Trails serving the community. The celebration brought current and former campers, counselors, and donors together to experience the space just like it runs during the summer.

Camp Holiday Trails will re-open this summer with some changes that counselors and campers are really excited about.

Four newly renovated cabins will better serve the campers' needs by offering better wheelchair access and climate control.

Roxanne Booth, the event co-chair stated, "it's sometimes hard to articulate how special and important the summer experience can be, and to appreciate then for children who have medical issues maybe not being able to be out of an air-conditioned room or a very controlled environment."

The first session this year starts June 15.
