Camp Taylor offers several programs for young people and families of children with heart disease. Our flagship program is our well known medically supervised free youth and teen residential summer camp sessions. We offer 9 camp sessions catering to the under-served population of pediatric cardiology.
Sharing the emotional, mental & social challenges that each person faces in life comes naturally at camp where our campers are surrounded by youth & families with similar life experiences. Shedding your shirt at the pool to swim finally "feels good" as almost everyone has a zipper scar.
Campers enjoy swimming, snorkeling, horseback riding, rock-wall climbing, skit night, archery, heart education and much more while at camp. Campers return home from camp empowered with new found self esteem freshly educated about their disease. Camaraderie and fun is the feeling of the week at camp. For many campers experiencing an environment where they actually "feel normal" is a priceless gift only found at camp.
