Hope With Heart

Hope With Heart is a 501c3 organization that provides a week long camp experience to children with moderate to severe heart disease or defect. Campers should be between the ages of seven and seventeen. The camp is free of charge to all camper families. The camp site is located in Orange County, New York and takes place the third week of August each year. It has a medical team on staff around the clock and the schedule is suited to meet the medical needs or restrictions of all the campers. Through Hope With Heart, campers realize they are not alone with their medical challenges. Every year parents say, over and over, that their child returns home from camp at peace with themselves and with a greater willingness to continue the struggles they face. For more information regarding Hope With Heart, please call 845-537-6602. The Medical Director, Dr. George Kipel can be contacted directly at 201 487-7617 or cell 201 741-0683.
