Camp Notaclotamongus wrapped up the first week of June with sunshine, lifelong memories, and tons of fun! The camp, hosted by Gateway Hemophilia Association, takes place every June at Camp Wyman in Eureka, Mo.
At Camp Notaclotamongus, kids with bleeding disorders are invited to enjoy the traditional summer camp experience—showing them they can participate in exciting adventures without fear.
While camp concludes with one last swim and a campfire get-together, it always starts off with “Infusion Day” so campers can learn how to self-infuse. The staff and nurses at camp are trained to identify internal bleeding and teach kids how to manage their disorder. Plus, most camp counselors have bleeding disorders, which allows them to relate easily with kids and families with similar backgrounds.
Summer camp offers kids with bleeding disorders a safe environment to learn and have fun. Find a camp near you! »
