Camp Odayin provides positive life changing experiences for young people with heart disease and their families. We served over 700 people in 2015 through our programs. Through our parent, camper and staff evaluations, we know that after coming to Camp Odayin, campers think more positively about their heart disease (85%), our participants say we fulfill our mission of providing fun, safe and supportive camp experiences in a medical supervised environment (100%) and 100% of our teenage campers feel accepted when they are at Camp Odayin.
