Camp High Five

In 2014 camp will be held June 15th through June 20th.

A typical camper for Camp High Five is HIV infected or affected (has an infected parent, sibling, residential relative or has lost a family member due to HIV/AIDS related complications). The staff and volunteers strive to provide an atmosphere that is free from the worries, fear, stigma and hassles of living with HIV. Youth attending Camp High Five have the opportunity to be around other children with the same life experiences and will not have to feel different or strange. Sometimes, camp may be the first time that these children have been around other children living with HIV. By alleviating the hassles of a chronic illness and removing the stigma, Camp High Five seeks to provide emotional support and recreational fun for HIV affected children living with HIV.



Eligible campers are age 6-16, but average age is 13-14 years old. Most campers come from an impoverished home, without the resources to spend on a summer camp experience. Many of these children are growing up in an atmosphere of fear and shame without ever experiencing the real joys of childhood.

Camp High Five has partnered with Camp Twin Lakes for the past 8 years. They offer a wonderful facility in which to host our camp as well as experienced supportive staff to enhance and sometimes develop our programming.
