Blood Brotherhood Camp Out

Blood Brotherhood

Blood Brotherhood Camp Out

Since 2006, HFA has addressed the complex health complications of adult men with bleeding disorders by providing the Blood Brotherhood Program. This program provides a safe environment in which adult men with bleeding disorders can share their experiences and knowledge about health and quality of life issues. Blood Brothers receive education and social support to enhance their coping skills while improving their health. HFA’s Blood Brotherhood Program reaches over 1,000 adult men each year at local member organizations and online.

To celebrate 10 years of Blood Brotherhood, HFA is hosting a Blood Brotherhood Camp Out for 40 adult men (age 21+). This national event for adult men with bleeding disorders includes a weekend of education, peer support, outdoor activities, nightly camp fires, and team building.  Attendees will also have plenty of opportunities to explore the sights of Breckenridge, CO!

When: Thursday, November 10th-Sunday, November 13th, 2016

Where: Beaver Run Resort & Convention Center, Breckenridge, Colorado

Who: Adult Men with Diagnosed Bleeding Disorders (21+)

Advanced registration is required to attend the Blood Brotherhood Camp Out. Onsite registration will not be permitted.

HFA has capacity for 40 adult men with diagnosed bleeding disorders to attend the Blood Brotherhood Camp Out. Registration will close once we reach capacity. A limited number of travel scholarships will be available for eligible men.

This event is for adult men only. Unfortunately, HFA is unable to accommodate spouses/partners and/or other family members.
