Inhibitor Family Camp was designed to provide an intimate, safe environment where families may learn, play, grow and meet other families dealing with the exact same challenges. Families dealing with an active inhibitor have many more obstacles to overcome. Many children with an inhibitor do not have the opportunity to attend regular hemophilia camp or if they do, they are most often the only one there with an inhibitor. Even within their own hemophilia community, they do not fit in as their needs are so very different. At Inhibitor Family Camp our participants almost immediately become family because we all live it.
