The Dreams From the Heart Camp

We recently made a donation to The Dreams From The Heart Camp. Members of our board spent the morning at the camp meeting campers and staff. We were all touched emotionally. Dreams from the Heart Camp is sponsored and run by Pediatric Cardiology Associates. The physicians, nurses, and staff all volunteer their time to make camp a very special place. Derek attended this camp in its early days. Learn more here:
Thank you Dr. Leonard, Dr. Pratt and Dr. Orie for all that you do.
Dreams from the Heart Camp was created in 1994 for children with severe congenital heart disease many of whom are limited and unable to participate in camps designed for “healthy” children. Our camp allows these children to enjoy a total camping experience under the watchful eyes of cardiologists and nurses. Several of our original campers have now become staff members and continue to come to camp, giving others the continued support that is needed. The children enjoy the pleasures of swimming, canoeing, going to an amusement part, fishing on a pontoon boat, and so much more. They may participate in games and arts and crafts. The camp also offers a unique opportunity to discuss health concerns with peers and with cardiologists through the “Ask the Doctor” meetings.
Each summer, children from all over Western New York who have had surgical intervention have the opportunity to enjoy this relaxed, medically supervised setting for four days at absolutely no cost to their families.
