Haemophilla Camp - Introduction
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. Having haemophilia means your blood cannot clot properly and this is where Barretstown comes into play. Barretstown Haemophilla camp cater to a variety of medical needs but our overarching ambition at all times is to offer children a happy and stress-free environment where they can be challenged, have fun and above all be children again.
This camp is for children and teenagers aged 7-17 years. The camp runs in late October.
Volunteers arrive for 9am the first morning for training and teambuilding before the campers arrive. You will be assigned to work with a cottage group and activity group.
New volunteers are paired with a returning volunteer for guidance.
Parents do not participate in this camp.
