Join us for the National Family Camp in Christchurch in July 2021

Planning for the HFNZ Seven Summits Youth Camp is well advanced, and registrations are now closed.
 
Invitations to register were sent to the parents of all eligible children, and the Outreach team have followed up with phone calls. If you feel like you've missed out on an invitation, please don't hesitate to contact info@haemophilia.org.nz for more details.

We are booked in to the Youth Lodge at Blue Skies in Kaiapoi, just out of Christchurch, on 17 -20 July.
 
We understand that some of you may be a little worried about a winter camp in Christchurch. That makes sense, it can get chilly down here. However, we've carefully chosen our venue to make sure we're all nice and warm. Each sleeping room has a panel heater, and the main dining/activity space is also well heated with heat pumps.
 
We've also planned our programme to ensure that most of our activities are indoors. Our off-site activities include a morning at the YMCA indoor rockclimbing centre, and a visit to the Antarctic exhibition at the museum. We also have the Bomabardier Blood movie, some fun speakers, some great games, and much more. 
 
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. 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. 

We're looking forward to this fantastic event!
