I want to thank the Hutchison and Dilley families for welcoming us to Denver and being such gracious hosts for the evening. Camp will not just impact the children who live in Georgia, but for everyone regardless of distance. Beyond camp, we are thrilled to partner with amazing military and veteran support organizations who will deliver their programs on our campus," said Brown.

We're also excited to be able to give a portion of the proceeds raised that evening to children of military families based in Colorado so they can come and experience camp," said Mike Dobbs, President and CEO of Camp Southern Ground.
