In their words:
"This was our first year at Camp Taylor and my family had a great time! We felt very welcome from the moment we arrived
at camp. The heart education with the mentors and Dr. Desai was a highlight for us." ~Family Camp attendee
About our Team
Our Team will have your family laughing in no time with games & songs! Unique to the Camp Taylor Family Camp programs is the priceless connection that our attendee families get to make with our mentors from our teen camps. Each family has a mentor (teens ages 16-21 with heart disease) assigned to their family throughout the weekend camp to spend time with. Every family that attends camp believes that the mentors are THE BEST part of camp! They are fun, full of energy, life experienced, amazing young people that know what it’s like to grow-up with heart disease and they are available to share their life experiences with everyone attending.
How much does it cost?
Camp Taylor in parnership with Kapiolani Medical Center for Women and Children work diligently each year to raise the $1400 cost to provide a free camp to each family. However, there is a nominal $75 registration fee for each family of 4. Aside from this registration fee, camp is free to all families.
Who is Family Camp Hawaii geared for?
Children of all ages with heart disease and their families are invited to attend (families consist of two parents and siblings living in the same home.) This camp program is geared to heart families from the Hawaiian Islands.
2023 Brings our 15th year of serving families of Hawaii!
