Health Center Standards for Camps Serving Persons with Bleeding Disorders

Bleeding disorder summer camps vary in their health care needs based on size, availability of trained medical persons on staff, and distance from professional medical facilities. They do not vary in their need for comprehensive health center standards.

These standards were developed by professionals in the medical and camping fields who convened at the 2005 North American Camping Conference of Hemophilia Organizations (NACCHO) Conference in Tempe, Arizona. The original Hemophilia Camp Program Standards were developed in 1993 by the camp subcommittee of the National Hemophilia Foundation's Nursing Executive Committee. The current standards have incorporated the Association of Camp Nurses (ACN) and American Camping Association (ACA) standards. The research and final draft was compiled by the NACCHO Pre-Conference Committee members listed below:

Chair: Jim Munn, RN, MS
Sue Adkins, RN; Val Bias; Peter Carner, MEd; Marilyn Manco-Johnson, MD; Michael Rosenthal; Nancy Roy, MSN, FNP; Kirstin Schmidt, RN; Julia Sek, RN; and Lori Wagner, RN
