The Hope's Crossing free summer camp starts Tuesday.
The three day camp is for kids ages 9-13 with unique physical challenges resulting from a serious illness such as cancer, heart disease, and muscular dystrophy.
The campers will be at Camp Loughridge in West Tulsa.
Each Hope's Crossing camper will have his or her own counselor for all three days, and will be integrated into the camping experience and activities of Camp Loughridge's Summer Day Camp. A typical day at camp will start with a morning "pow-wow" filled with music, fun, and skits, and then move into times for nature, swimming, arts and crafts, and archery. Some activities are being specifically adapted for Hope's Crossing campers such as canoeing and the ropes course, so that each camper has the opportunity to experience as much as possible regardless of their physical challenges.
