Summer Camp is a magical, life-changing experience for a child living with a bleeding disorder.
At camp, children develop confidence, independence and build life-long friendships and memories. Camp is also a place of encouragement, mentoring, and education for kids learning to self-infuse and enhance their role in self-care, a skill essential for life.
If your child is interested in the opportunity to play, learn, and grow in a safe environment with other children facing similar challenges, please consider sending them to camp this summer.
Registration for Camp Klotty Pine Opens April 1!
GLHF provides Camperships to cover the cost of Camp Klotty Pine for families unable to do so on their own. It is GLHF’s goal to ensure that all children living in Wisconsin, or receiving care from a Wisconsin Hemophilia Treatment Center, that would like to attend camp, have the opportunity to do so.
Camperships allow children to attend camp at a significantly reduced cost. If cost is a barrier to your child’s attendance at camp, please contact GLHF to apply for a campership.
New campers are encouraged to attend Camp Klotty Pine in Wisconsin and returning campers may attend either their former camp OR Camp Klotty Pine. We encourage all youth to attend camp in Wisconsin, however we understand the attachment returning campers have to their camps in Illinois, Michigan, or Minnesota, and will continue to offer Camperships through 2017. At that time the program will be reassessed.

Any former camper from Wiconsin, Minnesota, Michigan or Illinois, between the ages of 15-17 who exhibit strong leadership skills may apply for our specially designed training program. the program acts as a stepping stone for young leaders interested in becoming a Camp Klotty Pine counselor.

The program will offer one or two training sessions throughout the year before participants spend the week at camp.
If you are ready to put your leadership skills into action, contact Karin Koppen at GLHf via Email: firstname.lastname@example.org or 414.937.6782 to discuss LIT and Camp Counselor positions.
Although disguised by fun and games, Family Camp is designed to prepare families that have a child living with a bleeding disorder for the “true” summer camp experience, and help them gain comfort in sending their child away to camp.
At summer camp, kids begin to gain independence through self infusions and care, learn new skills, engage in healthy lifestyle activities, and bond with other children facing the same issues they do. Family Camp is the first step along the way to summer camp and all that it offers.
Immerse your family in authentic camp activities like canoeing, hiking, archery, arts & crafts and rock climbing this fall.
Family Camp is designed for:
- Children, ages 5-9 living with a bleeding disorder and their immediate family
- Families wishing to understand the benefits of summer camp programs
- Families looking to get away from the hustle and bustle of life and spend quality time as a family amongst their peers in the bleeding disorders community
- The dates for 2017 Family Camp will be determined soon. Visit our website for updated information!
