Guest post by Zac Brown
First, I want to give a big shout out to RAM TRUCKS for opening their hearts and supporting charities like Camp Southern Ground. I’m excited to be partners with them.
RAM donated this awesome truck for the eBay auction. I’ve had it for a year and have been breaking it in on the grounds the camp is being built on in Georgia. We’ve got 500 acres dedicated to building a state-of-the-art facility at which kids of all abilities will learn teamwork and life skills, while providing cutting-edge treatments for children with neurobehavioral disorders like autism, Asperger syndrome, ADD and dyslexia.
This is my life’s work. This camp is about making sure that my life meant something. This truck will become a piece of what’s built out here forever, and the support you give today has the potential to affect an infinite amount of lives.
Thanks for all the love,

About Camp Southern Ground
Nestled on nearly 500 acres in the farmlands of Georgia, Camp Southern Ground is the passion project of GRAMMY-Award winning artist Zac Brown. Inspired by his own experience as a camp counselor, Zac’s vision is to create a state-of-the-art facility that will serve children, ages 7-17, with both typical and special needs. Zac has long recognized the necessity for every child to have access to the best resources in order to be able to grow and succeed.
The camp will be a place for children of diverse abilities, socio-economic backgrounds, races and religions to come together to learn life skills and encourage personal growth in a positive, healthy and organic environment. Our programs will build confidence through activities designed to allow children to overcome obstacles and grow in their capabilities, while incorporating advanced programs of superior nutrition and physical exercise.
Among the many traditional camp activities that will foster youth development and create teachable moments for campers, plans are in place to align certain elements of the facility with the latest innovative therapies and technology for those children affected with neurobehavioral disorders. In particular, Asperger syndrome, Tourette syndrome and autism spectrum disorders, as well as learning disabilities such as ADD/ADHD and dyslexia.
About Ram Truck Brand
The Ram Truck brand continues to establish its own identity and clearly define its customer since its launch as a standalone vehicle brand. Creating a distinct brand for Ram trucks has allowed the brand to concentrate on how core customers use their trucks and what new features they’d like to see. Whether focusing on a family that uses its half-ton truck day in and day out, a hard-working Ram Heavy Duty owner or a business that depends on its commercial vehicles every day, Ram has the truck market covered.
