Children's Harbor is a charitable organization with the sole purpose of serving seriously ill children and their families. Children's Harbor provides these children and their families a place to be themselves -- to have fun and relax while also receiving no-cost services that make life a bit easier for the whole family. Children's Harbor at Lake Martin donates its camp facility to dozens of partnering organizations serving more than 4,500 long-term, seriously ill campers and their families. This provides them a place of rest and restoration in a safe environment.
Campers at Children's Harbor no longer stand out because of their illness, because other campers face the same diagnosis, medications, and limitations. Every camp session is unique to the camper and truly a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Attending camp is a chance for families to expand their supportive community as well as connect with other families who understand the issues they are facing. The opportunity to create a memorable experience for the entire family is priceless and most likely the only time during the year they can take a "vacation" because of the financial burden a serious illness brings.
The dedicated teams at Children's Harbor at Lake Martin would welcome donations of handmade cards that share a message of hope. Cards will be shared with children upon their arrival to camp as part of the mission to provide them with resources for hope, healing and the confidence to discover a new world of possibilities.
