Family Camp Program



Chapter Family Campers want to encourage other member families to find out what the CHS-MC Family Camp is all about. It is a wonderful program that the current attendees value and enjoy. We invite you to contact the office and ask about camp and what to expect from a camp experience. Please have a look at: Goals of CHS-MC Family Camp

The information below is about the 2018 program. We hope it will give you a glimpse into the CHS-MC Family camp experience. and spots are filled on a first come-first served basis.

2018 CHS-MC Family Camp will be held from July 15th to the 22nd at Luther Village, near Kenora Ontario. Located on the beautiful shores of Dogtooth Lake, Luther Village has much to offer including programming for children, three prepared meals a-day, comfortable accommodations, and activities for the whole family, hiking trails, boating, and more. Luther Village has an excellent web site: www.luthervillage.ca

CHS-MC will financially sponsor Chapter members who meet the following criteria:

  • Children 17 years of age and under with an inherited bleeding disorder
    • Their siblings aged 17 years of age and under
    • Their parents or guardians – 2 adults (In the circumstance where one parent or guardian cannot attend, one alternate adult may attend  in their place)

All members who meet the eligibility criteria will pay a registration fee of $50 per person attending. These Chapter members will be registered on a first come, first served basis starting Tuesday, April 3rd at 9:15 am.

Reservations will only be held if registration fees are paid by the deadline of May 31st.

Chapter members outside the sponsorship criteria are welcome to come to camp, but will be responsible to register with Luther Village and pay their camp fees directly to Luther Village.

We are pleased to continue to offer unique education opportunities with an experienced bleeding disorders nurse, Rose Jacobson. We are also excited to announce that Natalie and Matthre, pediatric physiotherapists from the the Manitoba Bleeding Disorders Program will be coming to camp for two days! Both the nurse and physiotherapists will be able to spend more time with families helping them with their goals towards maintaining physical wellness, transitioning to home-care,  and learning self-infusion. New for 2018 is a program from the Chapter Youth Committee. We are still in the planning stages, but we hope to have our World Federation of Hemophilia Twins from Mongolia join us for a day to experience our Camp program. We hope that the visit will help them develop their own camp program!

Here is the Family Camp Letter 2018 from Luther Village that includes the 2018 theme!

Lodging Information

The lodging arrangements for families attending camp are made in partnership with the Manitoba Bleeding Disorders Program. Families with small children with inherited bleeding disorders or children with target joints are most commonly placed at Beaver Lodge. People with  mobility issues are given second consideration to stay at Beaver Lodge. Due to safety and liability considerations, families are required to stay at their assigned  location. There is an opportunity to discuss your lodging assignment before leaving for camp.  Once you are there, you must stay where you are assigned.
