Our History

Family Heart Camp 2009 StaffIn September 2008, Inessa Love, Bob Wentworth and Gregory Rouillard, three members of Capital NVC, were inspired to bring NVC-based family camp to the Washington, D.C. area. Nine months later, Family HEART Camp was born! The inaugural camp brought together approximately 45 participants and staff for an unforgettable week-long adventure in compassionate community, which has continued annually through the present. In recent years, Family HEART Camp has expanded to include camps in Colorado, Wisconsin, Hawaii, Ohio, New York and California. In June 2016 Family HEART Camp was granted 501(c)(3) status by the IRS, so all donations to the organization are tax-deductible as permitted by law.

Our dream is that every family in north America will have access to Family HEART Camp within driving distance of home. While we are not there yet, there are other opportunities to experience NVC family camp in the United States, Canada, and around the world. To learn more about these camps, as well as the story of our common heritage, please visit the NVC Family Camp Heritage page.
