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.
Camp Trach Me Away provides an opportunity for these very special children to have the ultimate overnight camp experience all while under the attentive supervision of our medical professionals. Our campers horseback ride, rock climb, zip line, karaoke, participate in talent shows, arts and crafts and so much more - all while
