Heart Camp Cost

Thanks to the generosity of many donors, a $25 non-refundable registration fee is the only cost requested of each camper.

Children and adolescents with structural and congenital heart disease, and patients of Children’s Hospital, will receive first priority to attend camp.

If your child is not a patient of Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh and would like to attend Heart Camp, you will be charged $290 to cover your child’s expenses. If your child would like to return after the first year we will then place them on our permanent rooster and the only fee that you will need to pay in the future is the $25 registration fee.

Children who are not patients of Children’s are also required to have their medical records reviewed by the medical staff of Children’s Heart Center. Approval to attend camp will come following this review and a consultation with both your child’s cardiologist and a cardiologist from Children’s.

Space is limited and patients of Children’s Hospital will receive first preference.
