AFAN Sends 18 Children Affected by HIV/AIDS to Camp Courage July 3-9

Aid for AIDS of Nevada (AFAN) partners with Camp Laurel to send 18 children affected by HIV/AIDS to a week-long, cost-free summer camp hosted in Big Bear, CA, July 3-9. Camp Courage is designed to help children overcome the isolation and depression associated with HIV/AIDS by providing a therapeutic wilderness experience that fosters self-confidence, social interaction and support for children and teens ages 6 to 17 years old.

Thanks to the generous support from InCorp, the 2011 summer camp will be the most successful Camp Courage program in AFAN’s history. Through their unyielding commitment, they have sponsored several campers to attend the retreat and provided care packs filled with essential equipment for their adventure away from home.
