2020 Virtual Teen Camp, August 7-8, 2020
Hemophilia of North and South Carolina annually provide a joint teen retreat for teen’s ages 13-18 years. This event is open for anyone ages 13-18 who has either a bleeding disorder or a sister, brother, or parent with a bleeding disorder. You may also invite a friend or sibling! This year, due to COVID – 19, we are once again joining up and will provide a two-day adventure of fun, fellowship, and education along with our friends at Victory Junction. Our time together will be provided virtually, and for those who attend this year’s teen retreat, you will be placed on the 2021 teen camp registration list. An educational component is included each year on topics related to independence, job and career preparation, advocacy training, and bleeding disorders education. Fun activities are also being planned to engage teens and their friends from across both states. Come spend a weekend with friends – new & old! Share your interests, passion, and ideas about how you can make a difference for yourself and in our community. Our program will include engaging activities including learning self-advocacy, sharing your story, and how to adapt to many other life-skills challenges! Hemophilia of South Carolina and Hemophilia of North Carolina are offering this program for our teens, their teen siblings, or a friend!
(Because we are using a virtual platform for this event, participants must be 13 years of age, or if they are close to 13 years (12+) their parents must be present while they are online in attendance). Please read the zoom policy release below:
