camp kidsCamp counselors are needed for Camp Ailihpomeh (Hemophilia spelled backwards), a summer camp for boys, age 7-17, with bleeding disorders who traditionally have been excluded from camping programs.

The camp was first organized in 1981 by Dr. Keith Hoots, professor emeritus, and former director of the Division of Pediatric Hematology.

This year’s camp will be held July 13-19 in Meridian, Texas.

Men age 18 years or older wishing to gain valuable experience working as counselors and mentors with children with a chronic condition are welcome to apply. Nursing students, medical students, child life, students, social work students, physical therapy students, and pharmacy students are especially qualified.

For an application, please contact: Sabrina Farina, LMSW 713-500-8360, or Crystal Sallans, LCSW 832.822.4225. For more information about the camp, please see http://www.camp-ailihpomeh.org.
