Dreams from the Heart Camp

About us    
Heart Camp . . .
  was created in 1994 for children with severe congenital heart disease, many of whom are physically limited and unable to participate in camps designed for "healthy" children. Our camp allows these children to enjoy a total camping experience under the watchful eyes of cardiologists and nurses.  Several of our original campers have now become staff members and come to camp, giving others the continued support that is needed.  The children enjoy the pleasures of swimming, canoeing, going to an amusement park, fishing on a pontoon boat, and so much more.  They may participate in games and arts and crafts. The camp also offers a unique opportunity to discuss health concerns with peers and with nurses and cardiologists through the "Ask the Doctor" sessions.

Each summer, children from all over Western New York who have had surgical intervention have the opportunity to enjoy this relaxed, medically supervised setting for four days at no cost to their families.
