Camp Mountain Heart is a free week long camp for children, ages 8-17, with congenital and acquired heart disease. The Camp offers its campers the opportunity to share experiences with other children with similar conditions. Many of our campers have endured multiple medical procedures and often feel isolated from their peers. Camp Mountain Heart provides those children, many of who have never been away from home, the opportunity to connect and create friendships with others with similar experiences.
Camp Directors, Tracy Coup, PNP and Amanda Rhodes have been involved with the camp for many years. They are joined each year by experienced counselors including physicians, nurses, former campers and community members. Dr. Larry Rhodes, a Pediatric Cardiologist at West Virginia University Children’s Hospital, has been a counselor since 1996. Our counselors are experienced in all aspects of pediatric cardiovascular medicine providing a safe environment for your camper to experience independence and activites that are both fun and create confidence. Camp Mountain Heart affords parents and guardians the ability to relax knowing that their children are well supervised and in capable medical hands!
