Special Outings

When trips to camp are not enough, Special Love families can also take advantage of sporting events, the circus, and other special outings that don’t involve an overnight stay. Many are located in the Greater Washington, DC and Richmond areas and are often free of charge. Some are also educational conferences for parents and young adults (such as those below through Life with Cancer).Watch this page for special offers and outings and plan to join us!

Family Day at
Williamsburg KOA

September 22, 2018

Thanks to everyone who joined us for a day of camp fun (or spent the night and got a 25% discount!) We played games, made crafts, took a hike, and enjoyed a host of other activities. Click the image above or click here to see the flyer.

Special Love’s
Holiday Bash

In December, do you get visions of prizes and presents (oh, and sugar plums) dancing in your head? Who doesn’t? If you’re a Special Love program participant (past or future), join the crowd at our popular ho-ho-ho holiday get-together for a taste of the season.
