Kevin and Lisa Ringham of Bristow, Va., dropped off Sarah, 12, and Emily, 14, who has survived brain cancer but deals with mobility issues. Sarah reminded her sister of all the activities they would be doing again, like the campfire, the s'mores and the canoes.
"This is all very cool," said Emily. "I like just being away with my sister. We are having girl time."
Their parents looked forward to a child-free weekend.
"This is our only chance to leave our daughter with trusted professionals and to let a kid in a wheelchair have fun and us not be around," said Kevin Ringham. "It's a great time away for both of them."
