Since 1996, Camp Hope has been there for children living with HIV/AIDS. Camp Hope is first and foremost a chance for campers to escape the burdens of living with a debilitating disease. For an entire week HIV-positive children ages seven to 15 engage in traditional camp activities, sing songs, ride horses and just enjoy being a kid.
"Like" PODS Houston to help us continue to provide this camp to children across the nation living with HIV/AIDS. Your support will change a life!
