At Children's, we understand that every child needs to feel special. That's why we collaborate with organizations to offer children and their families the experience of camp—to have fun, meet others with similar conditions and build confidence.
Fond Memories from Camp Braveheart (32 Images)
At Camp Braveheart, every child’s possibilities are endless. From team-building activities to individual support, this camp has something for everyone. We give every child the chance to experience camp, build friendships and make memories to last a lifetime.
The Camp That's All Heart
Every child needs to feel special. A child with congenital or acquired heart defects is no different. We promote positive self-esteem with fun and learning. At Camp Braveheart, the only requirements are to laugh, play, grow and explore.
Camp Braveheart is organized by Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta. Kathy and Roger Flynn established the camp in honor of their daughter, Ansley, who was born with a heart defect. Today, camp continues in Ansley’s memory. Children ages 7 to 18 can attend camp at no cost through the generous support of private foundations, corporations and individuals—donations are always welcome.
Helping each child build friendships and share lasting memories, camp volunteers include doctors, nurses, other healthcare professionals who can provide care when needed and community members who serve as counselors and activity leaders.
"I love Camp Braveheart. It is so fun! I like spending time with other kids with special hearts like me."—Zoe, 15-year-old camper
"Camp Braveheart means peace of mind. I know I can send my daughter there and she will not only be cared for by staff that has cared for her since she was a newborn in the CICU, but she will be loved and cared for by people who volunteer their time and want to make it the special time that she and the other kids deserve."—Michelle, mother of a camper
As a parent, you can rest assured your child is exploring life in a safe and caring place. Camp Braveheart is held each year at Camp Twin Lakes.
