ABOUT US

Camp Hawkins was established in 2009 when several families of children with congenital heart defects recognized the need for their kids to know other children who have big scars and have faced similar challenges. And not just for the children with special hearts, but for their siblings as well who have to watch their brother or sister spend time in the hospital and deal with procedures and complications. What they all need is friends and fun.

 

Named for Dr. John A. Hawkins, one of Utah’s foremost pediatric heart surgeons,  Camp Hawkins is dedicated to providing a summer camp to children whose heart helps them endure a most un-childlike childhood. For 4 days/3 nights, campers enjoy the experience of a lifetime.

The adults hovering about, including doctors and nurses, wear T-shirts instead of lab coats. They sport baseballs and water balloons instead of needles. Night brings a sky full of stars and possibilities, giggles and confidence instead of lonely hospital rooms and worries about tomorrow.

Camp Hawkins is run exclusively by volunteers, all who have a special place in their hearts for special hearts.
