Camp Bon Coeur
Camp Bon Coeur was created in 1985 to give children with congenital heart defects a traditional two-week summer camp experience to meet other kids from across the country that also bear the scars of growing up with a heart defect. Camp Bon Coeur's mission is to provide a safe summer camp environment in which children with heart defects can grow physically, intellectually, emotionally and socially while learning lifelong coping skills.
