Dads Day

Aug 03, 2024 - Aug 04, 2024 in Prior Lake, MN


Dads Day is a day of outdoor recreation in Prior Lake, MN to build camaraderie and connection between parents of children with heart disease.  There is an option to stay overnight and extend the fun to Sunday.

Any dad of a heart child in 12th grade or younger is eligible to attend Dads Day, even if you or your child have never attended an Odayin program in the past.  Camp Odayin welcomes transgender, non-binary, and gender non-conforming parents to attend Dads Day or the Moms Retreat

Payment & Financial Support

We recognize that families of a child with heart disease manage additional emotional and economic stress.  Our Pay-What-You-Can (PWYC) model supports our commitment to make our programs accessible to everyone in our community.  There is a $50 registration fee per parent and there is always an option to pay $0. If you have questions on the cost of camp, contact the Camp Odayin office at

If it would be beneficial to your family, we offer transportation support by reimbursing up to $200 for your travel costs.  Contact the Camp Odayin office at for details on the travel cost reimbursement process.

"At Camp Odayin… “For the first time in my life, I was able to have not only one, but many conversations with other parents who actually could relate to our situation. Not only relate, they completely understood. Our conversations were not filled with pity and ‘oh how sad…’ or ‘that must be so difficult’ comments. I was able to talk to another dad about our children’s heart issues and concerns like we were talking about our kids playing sports on the same team. I can’t express to you how much that helps."
