Summer has arrived and for many young people that means a trip to camp.
But for kids with life threatening illnesses, summer camp and other fun activities aren't always an option.
Camp Horizon is working to change that. The Tennessee-based group is designed specifically for children with cancer.
Dozens of kids and teens attend Camp Horizon each year. Camp counselors say that even though the campers are struggling with disease, cancer does not keep them from enjoying life.
"Some people have gotten through. Some people are going through it the second time. Some people might not make it. Just that in the back of their mind makes it much more powerful experience," camp director Chris Reid said.
"I like the canoeing and the pottery, which is arts and crafts," camper Makenzie Matthews said.
The camp is sponsored by the American Cancer Society and is free for all campers.
