Flying Horse Farms is hosting a 10-week, 10-stop “camp”aign to help benefit the camp.

Flying Horse Farms is a medical specialty camp for kids with serious illnesses. To celebrate the 10th anniversary for this incredible place, the camp has teamed up with 10 local spots to run specials and promotions that directly benefit the camp.

Here in Columbus, the “camp”aign will kick off with a little help from local chef and Top Chef competitor, Avishar Barua. Chef Barua has created his own twist on one camper’s favorite dish: mac and cheese and cornbread.

The comfort food classic will be offered at Service Bar, where Barua is the Executive Chef, as the restaurant’s weekly takeout special. 100% of the proceeds will be donated to the camp. Gia, the camper from Flying Horse Farms who chose the dish also contributed to the colorful appearance of the mac and cheese by choosing the noodles the chef used.

Flying Horse Farms is reopening its gates for onsite camp programming in early May after more than a year. Twelve Family Camp weekends are planned throughout the spring, summer, and fall to provide a safe space dedicated to helping families heal after a turbulent year of increased isolation and anxiety exacerbated by also having to manage a serious illness during a pandemic.

New safety protocols including onsite COVID-19 screening, universal mask wearing, increased physical distancing, and enhanced cleaning protocols will be used during these sessions to help ensure the safety of all camp attendees.
