It’s going to be another stellar summer with new and old friends connecting special hearts – camp is good medicine!

New families and parents:

  • Parents often want to know if their child is ready for a camp experience. While there isn’t one “sure fire” way to determine this, the questions in Ditter’s Ready, Set, Go! document can be used to help determine a child’s readiness.
  • Please visit the Frequently Asked Questions page to review our criteria for acceptance and contact us with any questions you may have!
  • The charge for a camp session is $25!  Financial support is available for camp and for transportation.

Details to read before you start the application process:

There are four steps to the registration process.  Steps one and four are completed by you, steps two and three are completed by your child’s cardiology office.   Here are the steps in detail:

  1. Online registration – You will fill out the online registration form and will need:
  • Your child’s cardiac diagnosis, current medication and allergy information
  • Information about special education services or accommodations at school.  If your child is on an IEP or 504 plan at school, please mail or email (info@campodayin.org) a copy of the plan to Camp Odayin.
  • Insurance information (if you have insurance)
  • Payment made via credit card
  1. Medical form is filled out by a nurse at your child’s cardiology clinic. Once you complete the online registration, we notify your child’s cardiology clinic.  Your clinic will submit the completed medical form and clinic notes from your child’s last appointment, including test results.
  2. Cardiologist approval – Once the nurse at your child’s cardiology clinic completes the medical form, the cardiologist is notified to provide approval.
  3. General physical exam form – Your child will need to receive a general physical exam from a pediatrician (not their cardiologist).  The Camper Physical Exam Form is completed and returned to Camp Odayin by May 1st for Residential Campers and July 1st for Day Campers.
  • Camper Physical Exam Form: http://campodayin.org/wp-content/uploads/2017/05/2017-Physical-Exam-Form.pdf
  • NOTE:  The physical exam is required in order for your child’s application to be considered complete. We encourage you to make the appointment soon.  Please contact your insurance provider if you will need to arrange for an earlier physical.  There will be an option for you to upload the physical document during the registration process, or you may fax or email after your child’s appointment.

When will you hear from us?

  • Accepted Residential campers will hear from us in June with additional camp details.  Day campers will hear from us in July.
