The Mission of the annual Gateway Hemophilia Association summer camp is to provide campers with bleeding disorders and carriers of bleeding disorders a safe camping environment to learn about their bleeding disorders and socialize with other campers who relate to their medical needs while teaching them to be future leaders of our camp and community by stretching their perceived limitations, all the while increasing their self-esteem. In collaboration with the John D. Bouhasin Center for Bleeding and Thrombotic Disorders and the Hematology/Oncology Clinic at St. Louis Children's Hospital, campers will receive onsite medical care and education related to bleeding disorders in a traditional camp setting.
