Our history

On Sunday July 9, 2017, Camp Trach Me Away launched as Georgia’s first and only overnight camping program for children with tracheostomies

Our mission

Camp Trach Me Away provides a week-long summer camp experience to children with tracheostomies.  It provides opportunities for children with tracheotomies to learn life skills, gain support from their peers and engage in traditional summer camp activities.  

Our songbook!

“Lime & Sunny Shine”

”Lime & Sunny Shine” is a songbook dedicated to Camp Trach Me Away.  It’s the story of a lizard named Lime who learns that when you wear a trach collar, you’re never one-of-a-kind.
