In Georgia, there are over 250 children with tracheostomies.  Children with tracheostomies require exceptional care that often prevents them from participating in summer camps.  Camp Trach Me Away, Georgia’s first and only overnight camping program for children with tracheostomies provides a fun and medically safe environment for children ages 7-18 who wish to experience summer camping.
