Supporting Children in Need
Camp Heartland serves children and youth ages 7-15 either infected or directly affected by HIV/AIDS. This is a national program, serving participants from 20 states. These one-week camps provide a place where complete acceptance and freedom from social isolation is the norm. Through shared experience, psychosocial support and a lot of fun, campers experience leaps in personal growth and social development. Participants can enjoy many outdoor activities such as canoeing, fishing, archery, climbing wall and swimming. Other activities offered include arts and crafts, drama, evening programs and an all camp dance.
Participants who are 14-15 participate in the first step of a leadership program called the Adventure Program. They will enjoy many of the traditional camp activities as well as team building and an overnight camping experience.
The cost to participate is determined by family income. Generous support is provided by donors to allow children with financial constraints the ability to attend camp.
