Camp Taylor - Kids Heart Camp

Sharing

Celebrate your healthy heart or honor someone who has struggled with heart disease while also making a BIG, loving difference in the life of a child with heart disease! Help my children and others like them attend Camp Taylor - a unique place where they can just be kids at a medically supervised summer camp for children with heart disease. Even a small donation is a big help.

At Camp Taylor, kids can do kid stuff - climb rock walls, ride horses, play tag, race and swim, perform skits, eat too much candy - all under the careful supervision of pediatric cardiologists and nurses. But unlike other camps - these kids also take heart education classes to learn about their condition and how to advocate for themselves. They go in an ambulance FOR FUN - though some campers arrive and leave camp in an ambulance too as some are too sick to go home but the camp is an oasis for them. And they connect with other kids, just like them - letting them know they are not alone. Our daughter Audrey has attended for three years and our son Max for two - it is something that they look forward to all year. It was especially instrumental this summer in preparing our 9 year old son Max for his 5th heart surgery and 3rd pacemaker replacement just one month after camp.

Camp Taylor is offered free to heart campers and families contribute what they can, if they can. Many are overburdened with medical bills and related costs. It costs about $800 to send one camper to Camp Taylor, even with dozens of volunteers. $4000 pays for for 5 campers to attend. Even a donation of $5 would be a great step towards this goal.Camp Taylor ensures that every penny donated counts to improve the lives of children with complex heart disease.

Please donate and you will truly touch the heart of a child!  Thank you so much.
