Summer Camps for Children with Bleeding Disorders
Hemophilia of South Carolina provides summer camp support to families who have children who attend summer camps. The Chapter will provide travel grants to help with the cost of sending a child to camp. HSC partners each year with Camp Burnt Gin and the Hemophilia Treatment Center staff to provide mentoring support for the children attending Camp Burnt Gin with bleeding disorders. We assist with encouraging the need to learn self-infusion; provided by the Treatment Center staff, we share encouraging stories and experiences and provide mentoring support. We provide each camper with a commemorated Chapter Day t-shirt and provide the entire camp, counselors and staff with an Ice Cream Sundaes Social Event.
HSC’s 2018 “Chapter Day” will on held on Tuesday, July 17, 2018 10:00am to 5:00pm, with an Open House from 10:00am- 12:30pm.
