Norton Children's Brave Hearts

Camp Brave Hearts

Being average doesn't seem like much to strive for, yet it can mean everything for children who yearn to do things that other kids do. Camp Brave Hearts gives these children that chance at Center for Courageous Kids in Scottsville, KY.  Supported by a medical staff, a world class facility and financial support from Brave Hearts through the Norton Children's Hospital Foundation, children can pack their bags and set out for camp, free of charge. 

  • Family Camp: Feb. 21 to 23, 2020

    When a child faces a heart condition, it can affect the entire family. Family Camp is a designed to provide respite, recreation and support programs for the whole family. The free weekend provides similar experiences as summer camp, as well as the opportunity for parents to gather and share similar life experiences.

    To qualify for Family Camp, a member of the immediate family, ages 5 to 17, must have a heart condition.

  • Summer Camp: 2020 Summer Camp has been cancelled. Please stay tuned for exciting camp-themed activities to do at home this summer! Visit for more information.

Summer Camp ensures these fun life experiences are possible for our Brave Hearts kids, while also creating an environment that fosters opportunities for making excellent choices, creating and sustaining healthy relationships with peers, building personal confidence to work through challenges and achieve personal goals. Experience summer camp as it was meant to be - the adventure of a lifetime!

  • On-site Camp Medical Center

    We know that your child's health is most important to you, and being away at camp is no exception. The Center for Courageous Kids has experienced medical staff who are trained in all aspects of medical camping. Should a child need medical care during their time at camp, the medical center is equipped to be very supportive in a "behind the scenes" way. Additional medical care is provided by Norton Children's Heart Institute cardiologists and nursing staff, coordinated by the Center for Courageous Kids full-time medical director.
