Camper and Family Information

All information and material needed for camp will be provided through email or regular mail once your child has been accepted.

Please note this important information:

  • If your child requires special accommodations (i.e., dietary restrictions/physical limitations), please
    let us know immediately. We will make every effort to accommodate special needs.
  • Please plan on bringing your child to camp. Arrival time will be provided with additional camp
  • Adults are able to attend Camp as well and participate in the adult classes.
  • All campers can attend camp only once, so that others have the same opportunity.

In 1983, a group of volunteers in Preston County understood that people living with life limiting illnesses needed care.  Their tireless work led to hiring WV Caring’s first paid employee and Founding President, Ms. Malene Smith Davis. And, under her leadership she led the expansion of care into eleven more counties for WV Caring, formerly Hospice Care Corporation, to become one of the oldest and largest non-profit hospices in West Virginia. Her trail-blazing work coincided with America’s leading policymakers more than 35 years ago ensuring that West Virginians received hospice care through the Medicare Hospice Benefit.

Today, as WV Caring’s Founding President, and Chief Visionary Officer Malene is known nationally for her work in advocating for excellent end-of-life care.

Whether you are living with a progressive illness, or you are caring for someone who is, we at WV Caring understand just how challenging this can be. You can call us anytime to request more information about care, and we’re easy to access.
