congenital heart defects and childhood onset heart disease
in Utah and the Intermountain West
2018 Camp Registration has closed.
This activity takes place August 10th - August 11th up Settlement Canyon, near Tooele. Arrival is between 4-6 PM Friday and camp will end between 2-3 PM Saturday, although we welcome you any time you can make it. The Elks have provided a spectacular setting for this camp including a huge lodge, individual cabins, and a fun playground. The best part, however, is the company of other heart families!
We have exciting activities planned including fun games, a presentation for parents with Dr. Husain the new Head of Cardiothoracic Surgery at PCH (childcare provided), movie night, excellent conversation, and great food. With our group including more older kids, we will have some activities specifically for the teenagers too.
Friday - activities, dinner, and a movie. The canyon gate closes at 7:00pm, so please make sure you're through before then!
Saturday - breakfast, activities, medical forum, and lunch. The canyon gate opens at 8:00am.
If you are coming to ANY part of the camp (even just one day without spending the night there) you MUST register ahead of time.
