Camps we support

Camp High Hopes
Occurring during the month of August and lasting one week (Sunday to Saturday for the campers and Saturday to Saturday for the counselors) the Camp High Hopes has provided a summer camp for boys (ages 7-17) with bleeding disorders every year since the late 1980s. Bleeding disorders such as hemophilia and VonWillebrand’s Disease require specialized knowledge and care. Most other summer camps in existence either cannot or will not accept children with such disorders into their program. For this reason, Camp High Hopes Inc. offers these children a camp of their own where they can have the summer camp experience safely, while at the same time learning independence & self-reliance coupled with the skills needed to get there.

Camp Little Oak
Camp Little Oak is a non-profit, week-long summer camp for girls with bleeding disorders.  As space permits, we also have campers who carry bleeding disorders, or are a sibling to someone with a bleeding disorder.  Girls bleed too!  So, why don’t they have their own camp? At Camp Little Oak, we make a special place for girls with bleeding disorders, letting girls confront their bleeding disorders (just like boys), but also the unique parts of being a girl with a bleeding disorder.  We want all girls with bleeding disorders to know that they are not alone, there are others just like them.

Double H Ranch
The Double H Ranch, located in New York’s Adirondack Park, is a demonstration of the commitment and generosity of philanthropist Charles R. Wood and actor Paul Newman.  Since the Double H officially opened its doors on July 4, 1993, it has served over 60,000 children dealing with life-threatening illnesses from around the world. It was the second “Hole in the Wall Camp” in what has become a worldwide network of not-for-profit recreational and therapeutic experiences for children with serious illness.
