Camp Holiday Trails (CHT) is a home away from home for our Campers. It is a place where they can be their best selves, discover their strengths, connect with others, and celebrate all kinds of successes. At CHT we hold each other up as we unplug from the world and plug in to nature and community. We are inclusive, accepting, and compassionate as we work together to overcome challenges and create a memorable Camp experience.
Located in Charlottesville, Virginia, Camp Holiday Trails is an overnight camp for children with special medical needs. Our Campers, age 5-17, are welcomed from throughout the United States with the majority coming from the Mid-Atlantic region. CHT first opened in 1974 and hosts over 250 campers each year. Our staff creates a positive camp experience that has impact lasting long beyond the summer weeks. At CHT, our medical support allows campers to take safe risks and try new activities and experiences. We engage campers in traditional camp activities such as: archery, canoeing, high & low ropes, climbing wall, arts and crafts, horsemanship, swimming, athletics, nature, and music designed to build self-confidence, increase social competence, improve independence around personal medical care, and foster community.
