Jennifer Lawrence’s family farm in Kentucky, where the summer camp operates, was destroyed by fire. Camp Hi-Ho announced the incident on Facebook. “We are deeply grateful that no person or animal was harmed, but we still mourn the lost years of hard work and the memories we have acquired within these walls,” the statement said.

Blaine has pledged to remodel the camp by the summer of 2021 and asked for sponsorship for the restoration.
