    An inspiring Georgia boy who's faced death enjoyed the summer of a lifetime.

    Channel 2 and The Atlanta Journal-Constitution present a documentary style primetime program, profiling a young Georgia transplant patient’s first adventure at camp.  

    The show features Bronco Reese, who was born with four congenital heart defects and underwent transplant surgery when he was 9 years old.

    At age 11, he left home without his parents for the first time to go to Camp Braveheart, which is held at Camp Twin Lakes each year.  Bronco describes his experiences in his own words as the camera follows along on his journey, including facing his fear of heights.  

    Camp becomes his rite of passage to becoming a teenager. Then, Bronco explains what’s happened in his life since he left camp.
