camp logoCampers and camp counselors are needed for two upcoming summer camps focused on kids with specific disorders.

Men 18 years and up are needed to work as counselors and mentors with children at Camp Ailihpomeh.

Camp Ailihpomeh is a cooperative effort of the Texas Bleeding Disorders Camp Foundation, Lone Star of the NHF, Texas Central Hemophilia Association, and the six Hemophilia Treatment Centers in Texas.

Students studying nursing, medicine, child life, physical therapy, social work, pharmacology, therapeutic recreation and teachers are especially qualified.

This year’s camp will be held July 11-17 at Camp John Marc in Meridian, Texas. The camp was developed to allow boys, age 7-17, with bleeding disorders to engage in a camping experience that they were traditionally excluded from.

Pediatric patients and families of pediatric patients with chronic kidney disease, end-stage renal disease, or hypertension are invited to join in the weeklong summer camp at Camp For All in Burton, Texas. Camp will be held Aug. 9-14.

Swimming, zip lining, horseback riding, crafts, and making friends are on the schedule.
