A typical camper for Camp High Five is HIV infected or affected (has an infected parent, sibling, residential relative or has lost a family member due to HIV/AIDS-related complications). The staff and volunteers strive to provide an atmosphere that is free from the worries, fear, stigma, and hassles of living with HIV. Youth attending Camp High Five have the opportunity to be around other children with the same life experiences and will not have to feel different or strange. Sometimes, Camp may be the first time that these children have been around other children living with HIV.
