My friend Rachel (I’ve appeared on her Blogtalk Radio show! We talked hearts for 90 minutes!) has a great post over at Blog4CHD on why you should send your Cardiac Kid to Camp del Corazon. Camp del Corazon is a free non-profit 501(c)(3) organization that provides year-round experiential opportunities for children faced with the challenges of growing up and living with heart disease – and it looks like a heck of a lot of fun. I wonder if the CdC folks have ever considered expanding to the East Coast, because I never went to anything like this when I was growing up.
Why send your Cardiac Kid to camp? Rachel gives ten reasons, including…
There is absolutely NO COST to your family!
Thoroughly enthusiastic counselors (such as myself!) are there for the kids…
ALL activities have a nurse stationed at them!
But Rachel lists the best reason – and I mean the greatest possible reason to send the kids packing – at number five! And what reason could that be?
PIRATES! How can you go wrong with an awesome theme like pirates?

Seriously, a camp like Camp del Corazon would be an amazing experience for your child. If you can go, please do!
