The winners of the 2007 NACCHO/Wyeth Cup Awards, which recognize three camps
annually that best incorporate a program or an idea from the North American Camping
Conference of Hemophilia Organizations (NACCHO), were announced at this year’s
conference on January 26-28, 2007, in Tempe, Arizona. And the winners were:
- 1st Place and $1,000 to: Camp NJoyItAll in Clarksville, Ohio, for “Teen
Program,” which paired teens and staff mentors. Teens then served as role models
for younger campers.
- 2nd Place and $500 to: Camp Tapawingo in Falls City, Oregon, for “A Pirate’s
Life for Me Program,” which incorporated a pirate theme into all camp activities
throughout the week
- 3rd Place and $250 to: Camp High Hopes in Syracuse, New York, for “Blood
Brothers Program,” which paired younger and older campers, promoting
confidence and responsibility, respectively.
NACCHO is conducted by the Hemophilia Association, Inc., of Phoenix, Arizona. It
began in 2003 and is the only conference for the bleeding disorders camping
community. A pre-conference meeting for camp directors provides them with the
opportunity to discuss program and issues. Wyeth Pharmaceuticals is the exclusive
conference sponsor. For more information, go to: www.naccho.com.
