Event description


We are excited to announce that the Hemophilia Alliance of Maine (HAM) will again be partnering with the New England Hemophilia Association (NEHA), for WINTER CAMP 2019, from February 15 - 18, 2019!

With our partners, WinterKids and GutMonkey, Winter Camp takes us back to our Maine camp roots and will be held at Camp Mechuwana in Winthrop, Maine. Winter Camp is a weekend of engaging, intergenerational outdoor programming that includes ICEFISHING, SNOW SHOEING, LOTS OF OUTSIDE ACTIVITIES and new this year SLED DOG RIDES!

A few items of note:

  • Registration will be open until January 11th at 5 PM.
  • This free event has limited spots available and we will give priority to new families.
  • Please note that the expectation will be that if you attend, you will be participating in all outdoor activities.
  • Families will be responsible for their children at all times.
  • We will be staying in bunk-style, heated and insulated accommodations and all meals are included.
  • Equipment will be provided, but you are welcome to use your own snowshoes and fishing traps. If you made an ice fishing trap in the past, please bring that. Only children who are first time attendees will be making traps.
  • Please come prepared for cold weather and spending extended time outside. If you do not have cold weather gear, please let us know and we can help.

No medical or infusion support will be available onsite. All medical care must be managed by individuals and their family members.

Any questions? Contact tracey@mainehemophilia.org or call 207-735-6778.

Promises are that the event will be a ton of fun and will create a program that has potential for a lifetime!
