What is the Pediatric Pacemaker/ICD Camp? 

This special camp provides a unique opportunity for children with implanted pacemakers and defibrillators, many of whom also have congenital heart disease, to experience organized activities and outdoor adventure that they may not be able to at regular camps. 

In the past eight years, camps have been a tremendous success, and continue to be an anticipated highlight for many children. Camp is a magical place where children explore the outdoors, try unique and challenging activities, make new friends, and learn about themselves. For many children, camp is one of the most memorable experiences of their lives.

We strive to foster growth in each camper's self-confidence, sense of responsibility, understanding of others, and decision making skills while helping them enjoy camp's fun and excitement.  Our philosophy of our adventure program is to provide children with a wide array of activities and experiences that supports them in choosing and celebrating their own level of challenge in a safe and supportive community environment. 

We strive to provide the highest quality camp experience for children. Thanks to our generous donors, there is no charge for attending this wonderful camp!

Exciting Activities
