For the last four years, the Central Ohio Chapter of the National Hemophilia Foundation has been whisking people off to beautiful Hocking Hills to take part in a program designed to provide an entire weekend full of education, recreation and relaxation to people who have to deal with a bleeding disorder. We believe it's the one thing we do best! Our Family Camps are open to everyone, from 2-year-old boys with hemophilia to 60-year-old women with von Willebrand disease. We'll group you with other people who share common experiences with you and, chances are, you'll be great friends with them by the end of the weekend. Over the course of three days, you'll have a number of thought-provoking discussions with these new friends, play games and do arts and crafts projects with them, and go on some pretty epic adventures with them! This is a chance for you to be a kid again. A chance for you to get away from the hustle and bustle of your everyday life. This combines the fun you have during a great family vacation and the excitement and magic of summer camp. Going out to Hocking Hills each year and being around other people with bleeding disorders has made a huge impact on our lives. It's something we look forward to and encourage everyone to try at least once. Because we know that if you give it a chance, you'll want to come back year after year. So will you take that chance? Will you join us for the 2014 Family Camp in Hocking Hills? If the answer is yes, get your RSVP in as quickly as you can, because space IS limited and you don't want to let another year go by without having done this. See you around the campfire!
