About Our Camp


Everyone wants to feel normal. To have a sense of belonging and community. To participate in the same activities and have shared experiences with others. For the 40,000 kids born with heart conditions every year, finding others who can relate to testing, risky procedures, even open-heart surgery—sometimes more than once—can be difficult. For their families, watching a loved one struggle with the physical and emotional scars of being different while trying to make sure they’re safe and cared for presents its own unique challenges.

Camp Bon Coeur is a registered 501(c)3 nonprofit organization depending solely on monetary and in-kind contributions and services for its camp operation.

Contributions can be made online or sent to the camp office at
300 Ridge Road Suite K
Lafayette, LA 70506

Parent Support Group Coordinator

I am a heart mom who became involved with camp three years ago with my daughter. Through Camp Bon Coeur, I have connected with other camp families and wanted to help institute a parent support group. I know how beneficial Camp Bon Coeur has been for me, and I want to share the same assistance and support to other heart parents.
