Camp Odayin provides life changing camp experiences to children with heart disease and their families. Participants pay $25 per camper to attend Residential Camp, Winter Camp, Day Camp, Family Camp or the Young Adult Retreat.
Residential Camp allows campers in grades 1-11 to enjoy swimming, boating, arts and crafts, volleyball, horseback riding, nature, basketball, and music in a safe, medically-supervised environment during a five day experience. Camp Odayin hosts Residential Camp in two locations. There are three weeks in July at Camp Knutson in Crosslake, MN and one week in August at Camp Lutherdale in Elkhorn, WI. Campers may attend only one summer camp session.
Day Camp allows campers in grades K-3 to experience arts & crafts, nature, and new friends while receiving an introduction to our mission during this five day program. Campers enjoy environmental education and interaction with a variety of animals at the Dodge Nature Center in St. Paul, MN.
Family Camp is an opportunity for families with a child with heart disease of any age to come together for fun, education, support and camaraderie. There are two Friday to Sunday sessions hosted in the Midwest. Family Camp is hosted near Minneapolis at Camp Wapogasset in Amery, WI and near Milwaukee at Wonderland Camp in Camp Lake, WI.
Winter Camp offers previous Residential Camp campers the chance to reconnect and experience snowshoeing, broomball, and sledding over a three day weekend at Camp Wapogasset in Amery, WI.
The Young Adult Retreat allows former campers who are graduated from high school an opportunity to connect while learning about life experiences that are unique to young people with heart disease.
Camp Odayin serves all people regardless of race, color, creed, religion, national origin, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, or socioeconomic status.
