The mission of Camp Warren Jyrch is to facilitate personal development in a safe and fun environment. The four main goals of the camp are: 1) To assist campers by constructively incorporating their bleeding disorders and other infectious diseases into their self-concepts and lifestyles. 2) To nurture self-confidence and foster pride, hope and personal growth. 3) To provide an opportunity to establish peer relationships within the bleeding disorders community. 4) To empower and motivate children with bleeding disorders to seek a life of freedom and independence that is not limited by their chronic conditions. Camp Warren Jyrch seeks to achieve these goals in an atmosphere of mutual respect and support for young men and women from diverse racial, ethnic, economic, religious and geographic backgrounds.
