The camp is a fun retreat for seriously ill children. It was founded by NASCAR driver Kyle Petty and his wife Pattie in honor of their son Adam. The camp opened in 2004 and is located on 84 acres of land donated by Kyle's parents, Richard and Lynda Petty. The camp is a member of the Association of Hole in the Wall Gang Camps organization formed by actor Paul Newman.

The camp features a gymnasium, a theater, an arts and crafts building, a lake for fishing, a water park, mini-golf, bowling lanes, and an indoor softball field.

During the summer, up to 128 kids attend each week-long camp session. In the off season, the camp offers weekend sessions for families of chronically ill children. The campers attend at no cost, as the camp is funded by donations from corporations and the general public.
