Camp Hemotion - 6/24

This camp in Coarsegold, CA, is the Hemophilia Foundation of Northern California’s primary way to reach young people, ages 7-21 years old. The weeklong residential camp serves approximately 100 campers with bleeding disorders or who are carriers and their siblings. Now in its 29th year, Camp Hemotion was one of the earliest bleeding disorders camp and is considered a model program. Hallmarks of the camp include self-infusion training by medical professionals, educational sessions about bleeding disorders and leadership training for teens.

I joined NYLI because I felt that it was a wonderful way for me to give back to a community that has truly given me so much. I want to take my passion for volunteering and helping others to the next level, and to perpetuate the many accomplishments of this community. I have helped on a local level by volunteering at events for children put on by my local chapter as well as volunteering and furthering the swimming lessons program at Camp HONOR, Arizona.

I joined NYLI because I love working with our community. I want to bring about more awareness and make a larger impact for people with bleeding disorders on a national level. Lately I have been very involved in the bleeding disorders community. From volunteering at camp in the arts and crafts department, to now becoming the Arts and Crafts Director for Tennessee’s bleeding disorders’ Camp Freedom and joining NYLI. I am continuing to look for ways to help the bleeding disorders community.
