Family Camp (near Minneapolis & St. Paul)

Oct 20, 2023 - Oct 22, 2023 in Amery, WI


Family Camp is for families with a child with heart disease, who would benefit from connecting with other families who share similar health, emotional, and social concerns. Families who have a child in 12th grade or younger (no minimum age) are invited to attend.

Camp Odayin’s Family Camp takes place in the Fall each year. In 2020 and 2021, Family Camp was offered virtually due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Camp Odayin hosts two Family Camp experiences in different regions of the Midwest. Families may choose to attend either session, but may only attend one. Both sessions begin on Friday with registration between 4:00-5:00 pm and activities run until noon on Sunday. Family Camp is a two night commitment. 


Camper registration is available online in late August and closes October 1st. The weekend registration includes all activities, meals, and accommodations. Two weeks prior to Family Camp, registered families will receive packing lists, authorization forms and additional details.

Payment & Financial Support

The cost to attend Family Camp is $25 per person, or whatever a family chooses to pay. Payment options within registration start at $0 to ensure that cost is not a barrier to joining us. Families who choose to pay more than $25 receive a tax receipt for their additional contribution. 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 $300 for your travel costs.  Contact the Camp Odayin office at for details on the travel cost reimbursement process.
