In 2021, the WCCHN sponsored two Western Canadian Virtual Heart Camps for Children with Fontan. These full-day virtual events were led by physicians and clinicians, and packaged in a fun and lighthearted approach. Children aged 8-15 were given a safe space to meet other kids with Fontan, learn more about their own heart and ask any questions they may have.
In 2022, Virtual Heart Camp for Fontans was expanded all across Canada, and the first Pan-Canadian camp was held successfully in November.
Once more is known about any camps planned for 2023, it will be posted here.
Event Date: Saturday, November 26, 2022
Event Time: 9am – 3pm (Mountain Time)
Event Location: Online
Eligibility: Children between the ages of 8-15 who had Fontan surgery and are followed by a cardiologist anywhere in Canada!
We look forward to connecting children with Fontan to others similar to them through fun activities such as games or crafts and answering any questions you may have about your heart.
