Volunteer Registration

Merry Heart Children's Camp provides an opportunity for youth with heart conditions from Oregon, Washington and Idaho to enjoy the beautiful surroundings of Camp Howard near Sandy, Oregon.

Come join us for five days and four nights of fun.

There will be games, crafts, hiking and swimming with caring counselors and medical professionals.

We are an all volunteer organization and we are always in need of camp and committee volunteers.

I was asked 25 years ago by parents of a child with a heart condition where their child could go to summer camp in Oregon. There was no place. Since then it has been my dream to have such a camp.
