Parent Time at Family Camp

One of the most highly praised aspects of our fall Family Camp weekends is the parent time session on Saturday afternoon. During this time, heart heroes and siblings are engaged in fun activities with Camp Odayin volunteers and visiting instructors and entertainers. Parents have an opportunity to hear from medical professionals, ask questions, and create connections with parents who have a child with the same (or similar) diagnosis.

We were grateful in October to have been joined at our Family Camp near the Twin Cities by Dr. Bryan Cannon of Mayo Clinic. In November, Dr. Michael Carr of Lurie’s Children’s Hospital and Dr. Frank Zimmerman of Advocate Health Care met with parents at Family Camp near Milwaukee and Chicago. We’re so grateful to these amazing pediatric cardiologists for sharing information about the latest medical advances and thoughtfully answering parent questions. Special thanks to Dr. Cannon who provided us with permission to share his PowerPoint presentation:
