The River Way Ranch Camp has donated $1,100 to Champ Camp, the nations largest and longest running camp for burn-injured children.

Champ Camp is held in the Sierra Nevada foothills at Wonder Valley Ranch Resort and provides a safe place for burn-injured children to get away from unwanted attention and stares associated with their burn injuries. The camp also introduces the children to new and challenging physical activities that allows them to have fun and enjoy being a kid.

This year, Champ Camp will be held June 7-14 and will provide a unique summer camp experience for about 150 children.

River Way Ranch Camp is headquartered in Sanger and operates at Wonder Valley.
