Camp Bon Coeur offers children with heart defects an environment where they can learn and have fun safely. The Camp Bon Coeur staff is trained to deal with the physical and emotional needs of the campers.
Prior to the arrival of the campers, staff attends five days of training. During training, staff is certified in First Aid and CPR. The staff learns about specific heart conditions, team building, how to meet the needs of campers, about each program, the goals and objectives of camp and many other topics relating to the camp, its mission, and how to best serve the children in our care.
Many of the staff, instructors and counselors in training (CITs) were campers themselves. Each staff member brings to camp a unique perspective and many talents, which they are willing to share. The diversity of camp provides our staff and campers with a wonderful opportunity to get to know about the lives, people and cultures of our nation.
