For one week each summer at Bradford Woods in Martinsville, Indiana, CHAMP Camp provides a summer camp experience for children and adolescents who have tracheostomies or require other forms of respiratory assistance, such as the use of a ventilator. Our campers get to enjoy outdoor summer camp activities including swimming, canoeing, and climbing, just like every child should! They get to experience the thrill of zip lining and the adventure of climbing a 50' alpine tower while increasing their independence and creating memories that last a lifetime.
We always let our imaginations run wild when trying to find ways to create new experiences and memories for our campers. They always say CHAMP Camp is the best week of their entire year and we NEED YOUR HELP to ensure we provide the most transformative and innovative camp for our kids! Our goal is to raise $20,000 from November 28 until December 28, so every deserving camper we serve has the chance to #BeTheCHAMP they want to be!

CHAMP Camp is an amazing organization. We are able to give children a week to feel like a kid. The people who I am surrounded by are so amazing and so caring and want all the same things; for everyone to feel like they belong and to have fun. I support this cause because it gives hope. It allows others to see what we do here and to see how wonderful this organization is to help our amazing children to have the time of their life while gaining friendships that will last a lifetime.

I have been a camp counselor for 16 years. The week at camp is one of my favorite and most rewarding weeks of my year. So much laughter and smiles and amazing accomplishments. The kids are awesome. The kids and counselors from camp have become my second family.

Our son, Luke who is 28 years old now went to Champ Camp for many years. He looked forward to seeing his buddies from Camp each year (and climbing the 30 ft. tower). It was one of the best experiences in his younger years and it was the only camp that was set up to to accommodate children with trachs and ventilators. Champ Camp is full of God's love and some truly awesome people!
