Camp Fantastic is a week long camp for any kid battling cancer in the DelMarVa and Metro areas. Over 100 kids, and just as many counselors and staff, take over the 4-H Camp in Front Royal, VA, for an unforgettable week of craziness, friendship, comradery, fun and moments no one will ever forget. We were humbled once again by the strength of each child, their parent(s), and the medical staff in keeping each child involved in all things camp related as best as they can. By the way, the infirmary for camp this week has just as much, if not more, medical supplies (plus blood, platelets etc) than the community hospital in Front Royal, just saying...
Our son, Ryan Tomoff, is in his seventh year as a camp counselor and LOVES every minute at camp. He especially knows the value of helping and giving back to these kids as he had received from so many counselors when he was a camper for 10 years...and not that long ago.
