Best Summer Ever
Our week-long summer camp is for kids between the ages of 7-16 with heart defects. The only camp of its kind in Louisiana, we offer a safe and fun environment for “cardiac campers” to participate in a range of activities under the supervision of our nurses.
Kids will unplug, connect with others, and build camaraderie in this “home away from home” with opportunities for canoeing, swimming, sports, art, archery and teambuilding to help them grow their personal development skills. Lodging is bunk-style rooms with a common area, infirmary, and communal restrooms in one building. Bunk rooms (or “cabins”) are separated by age and gender, with a counselor assigned to each.
To register for camp, complete and submit the application along with application fee and a member of our staff will contact you for more information. Camp is free to attend for first year heart kids, and costs $750 for returning attendees.
Space is limited to 60 campers, and families are welcome to participate in fundraisers to help offset costs for returning campers. To find a fundraiser that fits into your schedule or to learn more about the program, please contact the camp office.
