A community of young adults with heart disease

Retreat Update 2021 

To hold our annual retreat in person, or keep PACE online for 2021? That is the question. PACE 2021 will be held over Memorial Day weekend 2021. (Friday May 28th - Monday May 31st) Whether that program will run in-person at Camp Max Straus, or virtually remains an unknown. 

While we would love to gather in person for the 2021 retreat, conditions due to the pandemic require us to plan for in-person, while keeping an eye on the trajectory of cases in California, and listening to mandates and advisories from state and local officials. 


Applications are now open, and we'll keep you up to date via emails and through social media. 

Email: PACE@campdelcorazon.org with any questions 


We hope to be together again in person at Camp Max Straus in 2021! 


PACE Love, 

The PACE Team
