Welcome to the Heart Camp Page
Our goal each year is to raise $70,000 for The Dr. Bill Neches Heart Camp for Kids so that we can provide this valuable healing experience for the body, mind & spirit to over 150 children, teens and young adults living with congenital heart defects (CHD). As our week long camp at YMCA/Camp Kon-O-Kwee, Spencer in Fombell PA continues to grow It takes more and more each year to provide the heart patients of UPMC/Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh this unique opportunity.

Heart Camp is a life changing experience for all who attend. The camp builds self-esteem and hope in our heart warriors giving them the confidence to live a normal life. We encourage all campers to understand their heart conditions so that they can share their story with others. Many of the children that attend camp are an inspiration to others and become role models and mentors to the younger campers. Here are a few quotes from our campers.

" Heart Camp is the best week of my whole year. The people there are some of the friendliest, strongest, and most inspiring people I've ever met. Knowing that we have all gone through the same things make us that much closer and our bond ten times stronger". –Elexa, Age 18

"Being with other people like me makes me feel good. I learn from them and it is great knowing that I am not alone with my health issues that there are other people that have to same limits and restrictions as I have and some of them have more". –Dalton, Age 14

Thank you for giving!
