When and Where?
The Hemophilia and Thrombosis Center (HTC) is proud to once again sponsor the summer camp program at Rocky Mountain Village from July 15th – July 20 2012.
Who Should Attend?
• Children with hemophilia or other bleeding disorders
• Siblings of the above groups
Mile High Colorado Camp is for ages 7-18. We accept 6 year olds on a case-by-case basis. Programming is determined by age. Check back with us soon to learn about the different programs we offer at camp!
Why Attend Camp?
The purpose of camp is to learn about bleeding disorders, develop skills and have fun! Campers will have the opportunity to meet new friends and participate in a variety of traditional camp activities. As always, we have included educational components with the goal of encouraging self-confidence and independence.
Many campers have learned to perform self-infusion, experienced teamwork, and discovered new skills during the week of camp. Staff at the Hemophilia & Thrombosis Center(HTC) and Rocky Mountain Villagewants this to be a wonderful experience that creates a wealth of fond memories for your camper.
What is the LIT program?
This year, we are excited to again offer the “Leadership In Training (LIT)” program for males affected with a bleeding disorder who are entering 9th grade to those who will graduate high school this spring 2012. This year the LIT’s will begin their camp week on Friday July 13, 2012 and participate in a pre-camp wilderness experience through Breckenridge Outdoor Education Center(BOEC).
Participants must demonstrate the ability and desire to be strong leaders within their communities. Through service learning, we will build relationships within our group, as well as providing peer mentoring to the younger campers.
This program will take place at Rocky Mountain Village and will offer traditional camp activities in addition to the Leadership Training Curriculum. For any questions about the leadership training, contact Amy Board at 303-724-2309, or through the toll-free number 1-888-724-7427.
What does it cost?
Each family is required to pay a non-refundable $75.00 deposit. The remainder of the camp cost, approximately $1000.00 per camper, is underwritten by other sources. If you have questions or need additional information, please call HTC Camp Director Amy Board at (303) 724-2309 or the toll free number at 1-888-297-0724. Scholarship forms are available. Scholarships will be granted on an individual basis.
How Can I Register my Child?

If you do not have access to a computer, please call the Hemophilia and Thrombosis Treatment Center (HTC) and we will mail the appropriate packet for your camper(s).
