HeartKids Teen Camp 2022

HeartKids Teen Camp 2022

If you are aged 13 – 17 and living with a heart condition, join us for four days of fun and adventure at Teen Camps 2022! 

Teen Camp provides you with the opportunity to meet other young people with a heart condition, share stories, make friends, and have a brilliant time – all under the care of fully trained medical staff and volunteers.

There will be two camps in 2022: Perth (Date TBA) and Sydney (26-29 September).

The camps are FREE with all meals, activities, accommodation, travel costs (incl. flights) paid for by HeartKids.

Please note Campers can only attend ONE of the camps in 2022.

Camp 1: Perth, WA (POSTPONED)
  • When: Date TBA (rescheduling due to COVID-19)
  • Where: Perth, WA
  • Who: All heart teens (aged 13 - 17) with CHD or RHD
  • Cost: FREE! (Includes all flights, transport, accommodation, meals and activities)

Register Now 

Note: The ongoing uncertainty of COVID-19 restrictions and border closures in WA unfortunately means that holding teen camp in April 2022 is not possible. HeartKids hopes to be able to run this camp at a later date. We will make every effort to ensure teens who have shown interest in attending this camp will have the opportunity to attend a camp in 2022 or 2023. We are still accepting registrations and will advise when we have a new date confirmed for the camp. 

Camp 2: Sydney, NSW
  • When: 26-29 September 2022
  • Where: Sydney, NSW
  • Who: All heart teens (aged 13 - 17) with CHD or RHD
  • Cost: FREE! (Includes all flights, transport, accommodation, meals and activities)

Register Now 

Registrations close on 30 June 2022.

Note: The camp will be operated under strict COVID safe practices to ensure the safety of all campers and volunteers. In the event of a NSW lockdown at the time of the camp, it will be rescheduled to an alternative date in early 2023.
