Heart Camp


  • Angelfire, New Mexico USA

If a spark from the heart gives light to the world, there’s no better place to strike than Angel Fire!

From whitewater rafting to horseback-riding, heart patients connect with one another through some crazy adventures. These adventures draw them to camp, but it’s the stories they share and hear that keep them coming back.

During small group sessions, we discover there’s more to illnesses than ash and soot – there’s fuel. With the help of medical staff and an art therapist, campers move beyond their surgical scars and the limits placed on their physical activity to develop a new self-image. That image is shaped by what they endured and what they hope to become.

Through character, coping and connection, we ignite each camper’s heart so it burns clean and bright with their full potential.
