Fourth Annual NACCHO Features Awards to Three Summer Camp Programs

Three summer camp programs for children with bleeding disorders were recently honored at the North American Camping Conference of Hemophilia Organizations (NACCHO), held January 27-29, 2006 in Tempe, AZ. NACCHO/Wyeth Cup awards are bestowed each year to camps that are judged to have excellent programs.

First Place and an award of $1,000 went to Texas’ Camp Ailihpomeh (“hemophilia” spelled backwards) for its “Leadership Program.” Second Place and $500 were awarded to Camp Bold Eagle in Michigan for its “Counselors in Training” program. Third Place and a prize of $250 went to Camp E Ho’omana Kakou of Hawaii for its “Career Day.”

NACCHO serves to promote and enhance the summer camp experience of children with bleeding disorders and to provide the coordinating organizations with a forum to develop best practices, share information, and foster new ideas. The conference and a pre-conference for camp directors were hosted by Hemophilia Association, Inc. of Phoenix, AZ and sponsored exclusively by Wyeth Pharmaceuticals.
