Over the years, I have been honored to support the mission of Camp Odayin. Its community reflects the spirit of its namesake (“heart” – “odayin”, derived from Ojibwe), and its community of campers, families, sponsors, volunteers, staff and all other stakeholders reflect that which is the best of human spirit and goodness.

I am so happy to support Camp Odayin! The Camp O team bends over backwards to provide kids with high quality, safe camp experiences — and they make it FUN! I’ve had the privilege of seeing how the staff work together behind the scenes and I can tell you they are just as energetic, authentic, and kind-hearted as you’d hope. They are also responsible stewards. Camp Odayin is an organization that consistently demonstrates exceptional fiscal integrity — just one more reason I respect this organization. I have been honored to contribute to Camp Odayin over the years and will continue to support their mission into the future.

I have been volunteering for and donating to Camp Odayin for 20 years and will continue to do so. I have seen the dramatic impact this organization has on the lives of children with heart disease. For the children (aka the campers) their week at camp becomes the highlight of their year. The friends they make at camp become their best friends. The freedom they feel and the confidence they develop at camp is transformative. They become bolder, stronger, more resilient. They develop the skills they need to become independent adults and leaders in society. The parents of the campers are surprised, shocked at times, with the developmental leap forward they see in their children. Camp Odayin gives these children, and their families, experiences they cannot get anywhere else. I give to Camp Odayin with confidence and joy because I know that my support will be used directly to improve the lives of deserving children and their families. I cannot think of a more impactful or trustworthy organization.
