Camp Odayin provides fun, safe and supportive camp experiences and community building opportunities for young people with heart disease and their families.
Results: We welcomed our first 53 campers in 2002 and have experienced rapid growth every year since. In 2014 a total of 700 people participated in our camp experiences throughout the year.
Target demographics: Children with heart disease and their families
Programs: In an atmosphere designed to enhance self-esteem and acceptance of themselves and others, Odayin campers have the opportunity to come alive emotionally and physically in ways they never dreamed possible by reaching beyond their medical diagnosis. Camp Odayin's Residential Camp is for children grades 1-11 with heart disease and Day Camp is for children grades K-1. Family Camp is for families with a child of any age with heart disease. Camp Odayin provides educational activities and support for campers and their families. Camp Odayin has developed medical and counseling staff training materials and conducts training sessions prior to camp. Volunteers are educated regarding pediatric cardiac issues and appropriate responses to various situations.
