The summer day camp that Jennifer LawrenceThe family on a farm in Kentucky was hit by a huge fire ̵
1; and her brother wants help to recover what was lost … which was a lot.
The Hi-Ho camp in Simpsonville was engulfed in flames late Friday night, turning their main barn into rubble and ashes. The barn serves as a sanctuary for a number of activities and attractions that Lawrence sets up for the children each summer … not to mention the living and work areas they used.
TMZ received an email that J.’s brother. Lowe, owner and director of Camp Hi-Ho, Blaine Lawrence – sent to parents of campers in the past … and it describes exactly what was destroyed in the fire, which is much more than just a barn.
He writes that the barn houses office space, which he uses, plus a separate apartment, which Lawrence often uses personally. Not only that, but it included the stands for their horses, the indoor riding area for children, the indoor rock wall they had, a wildlife exhibition center, an arts and crafts pavilion, a garage laden with farm equipment, a new nurse. .. and more. All this is gone.
Fortunately, Blaine says there are still many things that have not been taken on fire – including their outdoor sports court, the area of the tree fortress, the pet barn, the lake area, archery, animal pastures and open riding trails, a chicken coop and other campsites.
While Blaine is grateful that these parts of the camp are still intact – except that he has not lost a single animal or human life – he notes that he and his family are still devastated. In this note, he vows to restore and reopen for summer 2021.
Blaine also wants community donations through fundraising or 501 (c) (3), as well as for families to enroll and return to camp, noting that he will do everything in his power to make the place like new. Authorities are investigating the cause of the fire.
One last thing … Jennifer herself is no stranger to the farm – it sounds like she’s been in her family for years and she’s been visiting for a year or two.
