Thank you again for another great summer camp experience! My son got in the car yesterday and said, “Mom, that was by far the best year ever!” As we continued to talk about things that happened that week he said, “I love it because everyone is on level ground. There aren’t clicks. There aren’t the jocks, the nerds....we are all the same. It’s not like that at school.”


I know what you do takes a tremendous amount of planning and coordinating but every minute of it paid off! When you cheer for every camper that comes in and identify something specific about them they are really good at...it makes such a huge difference to who they believe they are.

What an extraordinary group of people!

I love going to camp. I look forward to it all year, starting right when i get on the plane to go home. Everyone tries to talk all year but nothing is the same as that first second you see all your friends again after 365 days. It's amazing to be around kids that know exactly what you went through and exactly how you felt; it's a lot easier than constantly having to explain every detail. I've been going to camp for 6 years now, and this year will sadly be my last, but I'll never forget my camp days and all the amazing people I met. I'm so glad I got the chance to go there! =D

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

camp every year, and it's completely amazing and fun. You forget completely that you're a heart patient.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

make camp longer =D and definitly extend the age limit...i want to keep going there.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

that I've gotten to meet people that I don't have to explain anything to about my heart. They just understand, and it's wonderful.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

awesome, funny, and just generally happy people that make the experience that must better.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

definitly get it's own facilities and camp could be so much longer. It could also accomidate way more kids.

Ways to make it better...

camp was longer!

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

not having enough time for all the popularity it's gaining...there's always a bunch of new people every year.

One thing I'd also say is that...

If I didn't have my camp memories I wouldn't be the same person I am today. My friends there have changed my life.

Camp Odayin Where do I start. My daughter Gina has been lucky enough to go to Camp Odayin the last four years. She was born with a heart condition called Heart Bock. Through the early years we were pretty alone on how this would affect her life and what changes she might have to go through. We were told By her great cardilogist that there was a 5 day summer camp that kids with varying heart issues were able to go and be able to see that there are kids out there with heart issues and they are thriving . She was able to go and at first was hesitant, not sure what to expect. When I dropped her off right away I knew thatthe camp would be great for her. The camp personnel were great! They were understanding and treated my daughter as an old family friend. When I picked here up the following week I practically had to drag her to the car and all she talked about the two and half hour trip back home was all the experiences she had and she could wait to go the following year. In closing Gina has become more accepting of her condition and more at ease that she can live a normal life. The camp personnel are to be commended and they have my thanks. steve trenhaile moose lake , mn

Ways to make it better...

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

how they accept us into their family and jsut kids a chance to have fun and be worry free if even for a short time

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

kind, very friendly and excited to have a large group of kids for 5 days( not sure I could). They had medical staff and professionals always on site to deal with any situation that may arise.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

have a bigger camp with more kids!!!!

I could have a day or two longer ( that is from my daughter)

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

be able to keep getting financial support to keep this great camp going.They need out support!!
