HFNZ are still running a National Youth Camp at Blue Skies in Kaiapoi, Nth Canterbury, but the dates have had to change. The precise dates are yet to be confirmed, however we're looking at dates around the weekend of July 17/18 to replace the previously planned April/May dates.
Growing up is exciting, challenging, and often very confusing. When a bleeding disorder is added to the mix the challenges of young adulthood only increase.
The Youth Camp, for 10-18 year-olds, uses a combination of education, fun, and peer and mentor support, to help young people move to the next stage of managing their condition. The focus is on being well-informed and better able to make decisions about their bleeding disorder treatment, education, work, life-style and relationships.
The Outreach team is currently planning this event, and they have lots of great ideas to make this the best Youth Camp yet! Keep an eye on your inbox for more information as it comes to hand.
