Honoring Doctors

Camp Odayin is staffed by the most remarkable volunteer cardiologists, who spend their working days and nights caring for pediatric heart patients. THEN, they spend their vacation time volunteering at camp with those same awesome heart heroes. Are these the coolest doctors ever, or what?!

On March 30th each year, National Doctors Day honors physicians for their dedication and contributions to society and the community. We are grateful beyond words for the doctors who choose to volunteer at Camp Odayin and those who care for our campers throughout the year.

Special thanks to the cardiologists who have already committed to supporting the health and well-being of campers as Camp Doctors this summer!
