Camp High Hopes is a week-long summer camp program for boys ages 7-17 with bleeding disorders. Dealing with a chronic illness is difficult, and the friendship, support and the sense of community that our campers develop here stays with them and lets them know that they are not alone dealing with the challenges that they will face throughout their lives. Our focus at Camp High Hopes is on what the boys can do, rather than on what they cannot.
