Camp Notaclotamongus

In partnership with the Gateway Hemophilia Association this overnight camp teaches boys with hemophilia how to give their own lifesaving infusions. Hemophiliacs are also at higher risk for obesity and all their infusions are based on body weight, so it is imperative that families take control of weight issues while the boy is young.

Using the Camp Jump Start® menu plan, campers learn to recognize the correct portion size of food.  They begin to understand nutrient density versus the typical Standard American Diet and its calorie dense choices which leads to weight gain.
