Community Camp

Hemophilia Ontario's Community Camp is a weekend program that occurs every other year at YMCA Camp Wanakita and is designed for ALL members of the inherited bleeding disorders community.  This program provides education sessions for adults, couples, and children while participating in fun outdoor activities.

Past speakers have included members from several of the hemophilia treatment centres across Ontario, as well as local speakers from within the Haliburton area.  Participants are able to cater their educational needs as this program offers concurrent sessions throughout the weekend.

YMCA Camp Wanakita

YMCA Camp Wanakita

YMCA Camp Wanakita, located near Haliburton Ontario, is open to all children and youth from 7 to 16 years of age.  It provides an opportunity to participate in fun activities within a safe environment while meeting other children with and without bleeding disorders.

With the help of six hemophilia nurses from across the province, children with bleeding disorders learn to self-infuse at camp and successful first time infusers will take home a video to show their parents.
