Arrrgh! Send the little mates to camp, me hearties!

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?

Cardiac Kids, camp, fun, and PIRATES! Sign me up!

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

    I totally agree about heart camp and Camp Del Corazon is a great one. Also, we are in Northern California, so it is a little out of our means to send him to Southern California, and I’m not sure if I would want him to be so far away from us. For those in Northern California, London is going to his first year of heart camp on Monday at Camp Taylor. They are located in the Livermore hills. We have supported them since they first opened. They do most if not all of the same things that Camp Del Corazon does but are a lot closer to us. Just wanted to let you know of another option if you aren’t in Southern California or it’s just not feasible to get there. 🙂 Thank you Steve for letting people know about heart camp, the kids have a blast & really can just be kids, not worrying about taking off their shirts or not being able to do some things, because everyone else has scars and also are not able to do some things, so they understand. 🙂

    Just wanted to add that Camp Taylor is also at NO cost to the family. 🙂
