CAMP BOLD EAGLE
About Camp Bold Eagle
At Camp Bold Eagle, kids experience a traditional summer camp environment complete with archery, arts and crafts, canoeing, swimming in a lake, and nature walks. Campers and counselors stay in rustic cabins in the woods and eat meals together in the dining hall. We play full-camp games, roast marshmallows over a campfire, and sing silly songs before meals.
For children with bleeding disorders, camp is a place where they can learn the valuable skills they need in order to become independent teens and adults. They will learn from each other, from their counselors (many of whom live with bleeding disorders themselves), and from the many adult volunteers about ways to manage their disorder both medically and socially.
For possibly the first time your child will be surrounded by peers who have also faced the challenges of living with a bleeding disorder. Camp is a place where kids who sometimes feel like outsiders find themselves on the inside.
Campers at Bold Eagle tend to return year after year and together graduate to HFM’s other camping programs. Many children who meet at camp become lifelong friends and find themselves in the middle of one of the strongest support systems available.
