Cancer and Blood Disorders
The mission of Camp Ailihpomeh (Hemophilia spelled backwards) is to serve the needs of boys from age seven to seventeen with bleeding disorders, providing a camping experience for a group of children who have traditionally been excluded from participating in other summer camp programs. The experience of camping with other children in a natural outdoor setting strengthens the child’s ability to cope with the daily physical and emotional challenges of a disability and/or chronic illness. The best explanation for the camp’s continued success is the positive emphasis on what is possible, despite any limitations imposed by their bleeding disorder.
Applications are mailed out by each HTC to eligible individuals approximately the middle of April. The deadline for submitting the application will be in June and will be on the application. If you have not received an application and are eligible to attend, please contact your HTC. All participating HTCs are listed on the "Links and Contacts" page.
