Six families got a wish of a lifetime in the form of a camping trailer through the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
The foundation grants wishes to children with critical illnesses. ArrKann RV teamed up with them this weekend to gift six trailers across the province to sick kids and their families.
Desiree Burkett, wish coordinator, told CTV News Edmonton that getting a trailer to go camping is something many kids dream about.
“We have so many families that love to camp and love to travel,” Burkett said. “The great thing about trailer wishes is that it’s the gift that keeps on giving.
“They can continue making memories with their family together, and they can continue going on adventures and thinking about their wish,” she added.
Aria Deschamps was one of those kids.
“I got excited,” Deschamps said, adding she could not wait to try out the bunk beds.
