Mile High Summer Camp

NHF Colorado, in close partnership with the Hemophilia and Thrombosis Center (HTC), is proud to once again sponsor the summer camp program at Easter Seals, Rocky Mountain Village.

Why Attend Camp?  

The purpose of camp is to learn about their bleeding disorder, create life-long friendships and push their own boundaries in a safe environment!  Campers will have the opportunity to meet new friends, practice self-infusion and participate in a variety of traditional camp activities.  As always, we have included educational components with the goal of encouraging self-confidence and independence.

Many campers have learned to perform self-infusion, experienced teamwork, and discovered new skills during the week of camp.  Staff at NHF Colorado, the Hemophilia & Thrombosis Center(HTC) and Rocky Mountain Village want this to be a wonderful experience that creates a wealth of fond memories for your camper.

Who Can Attend Camp?

Mile High Camp is for male & female campers, ages 7-18, who are affected by a bleeding disorder andCamp Swords their siblings. 6 year olds are accepted on a case-by-case basis and are determined appropriate to attend parent, chapter and HTC advisement.  Campers from Colorado, Wyoming and Montana can attend.

What is the LIT program?

This year, we are excited to again offer the “Leadership In Training (LIT)” program for campers, male & female, affected with a bleeding disorder who are entering 9th grade to those who will graduate high school this spring.  This year the LIT’s will begin their camp week on the Friday before camp and participate in a pre-camp wilderness experience through the Breckenridge Outdoor Education Center(BOEC).

Participants must demonstrate the ability and desire to be strong leaders within  their communities.  Through service learning, we will build relationships within our group, as well as providing peer mentoring to the younger campers.

This program will take place at Rocky Mountain Village and will offer traditional camp activities in addition to the Leadership Training Curriculum.  For any questions about the leadership training, contact Amy Board at 720-626-1263 or aboard@hemophilia.org.

What does it cost?

Each family is asked to pay a non-refundable $75.00 deposit.   The remainder of the camp cost, approximately $1000.00 per camper, is underwritten by other sources.  If you have questions or need additional information, please call Camp Director Amy Board at (720) 626-1263, aboard@hemophilia.org.
