Family Camp

Our 32nd Annual Family Camp will be held from Wednesday, June 26 to Saturday, June 29 at Geneva Point Center on Lake Winnipesaukee in Moultonborough, New Hampshire.

Since 1992, NEHA has offered Family Camp to anyone with a bleeding disorder who receives care in one of the six New England states. This vital program aims to accomplish two goals: to increase acceptance and management of the diagnosis and to build strong community connections.

For more than thirty years, even during a global pandemic, the purpose and magic of Camp has remained strong and steady. Watch this video to see what Family Camp is all about.

Activities and Overview 

  • Children ages 4-12 will be assigned to color groups based on their age and will rotate through a variety of activities including arts and crafts, woodshop, archery, field games, and waterfront activities on Lake Winnipesaukee. Family Camp helps campers learn how to self-infuse for the first time in a relaxed and supportive environment. For those who are deemed eligible by their hematologist, self-infusion classes will be taught by medical professionals.
  • Childcare is available for infants to age three.
  • Teens ages 13-15 will participate in Adventure Club, a program that combines traditional camp activities with opportunities to learn self-dependence skills. Teens will also participate in a special activity to challenge them to self-infuse in a non-traditional environment (like on a paddle board, on a hike, etc).
  • Teens ages 16-17 are junior counselors.
    • Please note: all attendees under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
  • Young adults ages 18+ are counselors or volunteers.
  • Parents will have their own educational sessions while their kids rotate through the activities with their color groups.
  • Kids and parents will share all meals together, and will participate in family activities together throughout the week.
