Double H Ranch Annual Report 2008
letter from the board chairman
2008 was an inspiring and fulfilling year. Despite
market upheaval and an uncertain economy, each of
our summer residential campers ‘Got Inspired to Go
Inspire’ during their Week in the Woods. The Double
H winter students and families had an ‘awesome’
season on the slopes taking advantage of Charley’s
Chalet, the new ski lodge. The Double H Spring and
Fall Family-Based Program participants could not
say enough about the program staff and volunteers
who supported their weekend stays. Because of you
we met our goal of securing a $3.1 million annual
operating budget.
Our Board remained focused, working alongside
Max on addressing the organization’s strategic
issues with the goal of enhancing organizational and
financial sustainability. We are accountable not only
to the over 1,750 children and family members we
serve annually, but to meeting the expectations of
Get Inspired, Go Inspire
our loyal individuals, foundations, organizations
and corporations who partner with us to deliver
our mission.
This year I’ve had the privilege of spending
time with the multifaceted Double H family. I’m
enlightened by interactions with the year-round
staffers who wear many hats as they play numerous
roles and hold in high esteem the record number of
209 winter volunteer instructors, National Ski Patrol
and lodge hosts who bring magic to the slopes. I
have great respect for the incredibly talented and
committed 125 summer staff members who deliver
an unforgettable week of Adirondack adventure to
our summer campers, and I am in awe of the 1,500
medical, individual and community volunteers.
The pages upon pages of names of generous
donors who helped us reach this year’s goal of $3.1
million make me realize that my voice is just one in
thousands… and although the Board is accountable
for executing the bylaws, I recognize that our
success lies with these extraordinary groups of
people who come together to create the magic.
Thank you for a terrific 2008.
Victor Hershaft, Board Chairman
Double H Ranch Annual Report 2008
message from the executive director
While we are all deeply saddened to lose an
extraordinary man and our co-founder of the Double
H Ranch, we need to celebrate the life and legacy
of this beloved hero. Paul Newman’s passion and
selfless commitment to the welfare of families and
children living with serious medical illnesses have
inspired people everywhere.
When Paul partnered with Charley Wood in 1992
you could see the enthusiasm and pure joy in the
eyes of both of these men as they created the
second Hole in the Wall Camp, the Double H Ranch.
When these men interacted with the children you
could sense their delight in knowing that they
were making positive and lasting changes in the
lives of these amazing kids. As a bonus, their lives
changed as well and we will continue to fulfill their
vision in providing the highest quality of programs
and medical services as a tribute to them and their
extraordinary legacy.
Get Inspired, Go Inspire
As we all know, 2008 was filled with unique
economic challenges and opportunities for all
not-for-profit organizations. The Double H Ranch
is uniquely challenged with the reality that we will
never charge for direct services, but we are also
blessed in many ways.
Our community has embraced our critical mission
since inception in 1992, and I truly believe that our
society has renewed their commitment to continue
to dedicate their time and resources in helping those
who are less fortunate.
Our product is “changing lives” and with this comes
an incredible sense of responsibility and obligation.
Childhood illnesses are unfortunately not going to
disappear, so we must constantly evaluate our key
strategic issues and core initiatives while monitoring
the components that make up our success.
We should always reflect on how we have gotten
where we are today and look to the future with
receptive outlooks and creative thinking. Together,
we will achieve financial sustainability to ensure that
the life-changing gifts of the Double H Ranch will
always be afforded to our amazing kids and families.
Thank you for believing in our mission and potential
to make positive changes in the lives of others.
Max Yurenda, CEO/Executive Director

medical diagnoses we serve
From the medical support
“The Body Shop looks the
same as it did fifteen years
ago; the difference now is
that the medical staff can
provide more advanced
medical treatment. We
can treat a painful sickle
cell crisis on-site with
intravenous narcotics.
The equipment is more
sophisticated which
means that kids don’t
have to be sent off to the
hospital as frequently.”

“...though the population of children
with HIV screening is decreasing, the
spectrum of illnesses that the Double H
serves has increased. The diagnoses of
the children I see at the Double H have
grown. In the beginning, most of the
children suffered from HIV, sickle cell
disease, leukemias, and solid tumors.
The diagnoses now include children
with a wide variety of blood disorders,
neuromuscular diseases, genetic
disorders and metabolic diseases. And,
the entire medical staff takes care of many
more campers and counselors per camp
session than we did fourteen years ago.”

Dear Counselors and Staff of Double H Ranch,
We are confident that you have heard (and read) this before—what a truly wonderful experience you provide at Double H Ranch!
We just wanted to take a moment and express our heartfelt gratitude to each and every one of you for the great time our daughter
Melanie had at camp during Session 2. From the very first second upon entering the camp grounds and being greeted with applause
and cheering to the tearful singing and hugs good-bye we knew she was in good hands. In fact although you tell people that Double
H stands for Health & Happiness—we know the secret (shhh, we won’t tell). Double H really stands for Heavenly Hands!
Thank you for making a difference—making a difference in the lives of the campers who attend, like Melanie and also making a
difference in the lives of the families too (like ours!). We are telling every one of Mel’s adventures—whitewater rafting, overnight
tent camping, and zip-lining. We have tried to always include Melanie in everything we do—to not let her physical condition
prevent her spirit from experiencing all that life has to offer.
She is a blessing to us. She has transformed our lives and so often the lives of those she meets. We have been blessed by all of you
from the nurses, to the maintenance worker, to front office staff, to the Board of Directors, the corporate partners, to the 2nd grader
reading books to raise funds, and especially the wonderful counselors in the Bear Cabin. Thank you from all of us!

adaptive winter sports program
“The best thing about winter is you don’t have to wait a year to come back to
the Double H Ranch.” —Nicholas S., winter student and summer camper
2008 Winter Participants
(by state)
The foresight, sanction and support provided by our cofounding organizations The Charles R. Wood Foundation
and the Association of Hole in the Wall Camps to meet the
growing popularity of our winter program, coupled with the
commitment and generosity of many more supporters, has
allowed us to make this dream a reality for the Double H
Ranch. On January 5, 2008, we kicked off the 11th season of
the Adaptive Winter Sports Program with the celebration of
a brand-new ski lodge that will enable us to give twice the
number of children the opportunity to learn a life-long skill
and experience the magic of snow. This season we served a
record 168 students and 400 family members.

brothers and sisters ski, and she has patiently been
waiting. To send her to this program confident she would
be safe and treated normally, well it’s what parents of
children with a disability dream of. Chloe’s brother, Issac,
also completed the Double H program. She is who we

Subject: Thank you AGAIN!!!
Thank you and all the Double H staff again for a terrific Autism Family weekend. Everyone at Double H went
out of their way to make it such a memorable experience for us. I don’t think I could ever express in words
how grateful we have been. Aaron really enjoyed himself. He is like the energizer bunny and it’s hard to get
him to stop, and yet he was actually exhausted after all the fun at Double H. He LOVED IT and I loved it too!! It’s an incredible bonding experience for us. It’s so nice to be treated and cared for in the way the staff has
shown their concern for us.
Thank you too, for the DVD slide show. The songs on the DVD are so touching as well. You all have been so
thoughtful. I’m sure all of the families will treasure their DVDs!
We are looking forward to hopefully be able to come to Double H for the Winter Program. Hopefully, our 17
year old will be able to join us this winter before he goes to college the following year. I look forward to Double
H like most people would look forward to a Disney World vacation. Seriously!!! I get that excited inside!!

“The campers may look up to
us as volunteers/counselors,
but really I think many of us
look up to them even more.”
—Volunteer Arielle Eagan, session 1
Our GE volunteers dedicated a record 1,296
hours of time throughout the year installing
flooring, painting, staining and tearing down
a cabin for refabrication in preparation for
the next season.
