The Hotel will convert an entire floor into a “campground” with bunk beds and camping gear, in which the campers will stay four nights under the supervision of volunteers and medical staff from MD Anderson. Campers will enjoy activities both at the hotel and at surrounding city attractions including a campfire on the pool deck, a pool party, day at the Houston Zoo, and much more.
“Cancer is something that has touched everyone in one way or another,” said General Manager Tom Segesta. “We are so honored to get the opportunity to provide these children with a safe and fun camping environment through the support of our staff, community and volunteers. These children have been through a lot, and we are grateful to be able to give back to them.”
