Our 2014 camp will run from Sunday, August 17th, to Saturday, August 23rd.
Experienced counselors and volunteers staff the camp at the Hulbert Outdoor Center in Fairlee, Vermont. Volunteers include physicians, allied health professionals, medical students, nurses, physical and occupational therapists, as well as adults with rheumatic diseases and past campers.
Parents and families who otherwise may be hesitant to involve their children in an overnight camp experience because of medical concerns are able to do so in a reassuring environment. In addition, our campers often maintain the relationships they forge at camp throughout the year.
Camp Dartmouth-Hitchcock is an invaluable part of services we offer to children, primarily from the New England region, with rheumatic diseases.
Since its inception in 1983, the camp has been operating due to generous donations made by both organizations and individuals. In addition, a staff of committed professionals (including volunteers from DHMC, the VA, and the community) donate a week of their personal vacation time each summer for the children.
