California: HIV/AIDS Kids Enjoying Their Own Magical Summer
August 10, 2010
For the sixth summer in a row, HIV-positive children and young adults from all over the West Coast have come to Camp Kindle, a free camp in the Santa Clarita Valley, for the fun and games their HIV-negative peers take for granted.
"I like coming to this camp because there's a lot to talk about," said a 14-year-old who, at a young age, lost her mother to AIDS. "Other people don't understand and if you tell them your story, some people don't want to be around you."
