Haemophilia Camp

The Haemophilia Camp is a specially designed programme where children and teenagers with a bleeding disorder can attend, have some fun and meet other children and teenagers from Ireland and the UK.

Haemophilia Camp: An Introduction

The Haemophilia Camp is a specially designed programme for children and teenagers aged 7-17 who live with a bleeding disorder. It is an opportunity to experience the magic of Barretstown and its range of activities and programmes, while also meeting other young people with a similar condition. Parents do not attend this camp. This camp usually takes place in late October and runs from a Thursday afternoon to Sunday.

For campers travelling from within Ireland, we have pick up points at central locations in Dublin, or for those arriving by car arrival time is from 10:30am to 12noon and departure time is 10am on your last day. UK campers will be collected from the airport and can arrive to camp throughout the day.

Check out our typical day at camp overview below and image galleries to get a feel for camp.
