The Pediatric Cardiology Center of Oregon is proud to announce that we will be co-sponsoring a children’s heart camp in cooperation with Doernbecher Children’s Hospital called Merry Heart Children’s Camp. The camp is scheduled to open in the summer of 2016. The camp will host 48 children, 24 boys and 24 girls, ages 9 to 14 who have undergone open heart surgery. We will be asking campers to register starting in early 2016.
We are limited to 48 campers: 24 boys and 24 girls. Campers with heart conditions should be between the ages of 9 and 14 (prior to August 21, 2016). Campers will be accepted to camp as applications are received and reviewed. Each camper must meet the following criteria:
If the child has any other illnesses, disabilities (physical or developmental), or other health problems, Merry Heart Children’s Camp will review those files on an individual basis and determine if the child will be accepted to camp.
The cost for camp is $550.00, but the only charge to the camper is a nonrefundable registration fee of $50.00.
We would like to encourage any families who are in the position to pay the full camper fee or in between the $50.00 registration fee to the full amount, please do so. Every dollar donated will help. Your support/donation will help Merry Heart Children’s Camp and the campers who may not be able to pay more. Thank you.
