For some kids--the campers range in age from 5 to 18-- the week away at Camp Meeker is their first post-op separation from anxious parents. Here, Dylan Levy gets a send off from his mother, Amber, before last year's camp. We was back again this week.

  Life is often more complicated for kids who have had an organ transplant. But a special camp in the hills of western Sonoma County brings them together for a few days each summer. Reporter Rhian Miller visited their annual session this week.

The Annual Solid Organ Transplant Camp by Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital Stanford –its official name—wraps up this year’s session on Saturday.
