The candlelighters attended a retreat hosted specifically for them at Camp of the Tall Pines. Tall Pines welcomed the candlelighters to the camp with a golden balloon arch and custom embroidered towels and a weekend of fun and relaxation. Participants tested their skills on the ropes course. They rode horses through the pine trees and enjoyed a few care-free days without medical appointments. Candlelighters enriches the lives of children who have cancer by providing hope, support, encouragement, advocacy and education to those children, their families, and the community at large. Camp of the Tall Pines helped Candlelighters fulfill their mission of hope to these families during their stay in Mayhill.
