Changing Lives Through Camp
Camp Klotty Pine
Camp Klotty Pine creates magical, life-changing experiences for children living with a bleeding disorder. At camp, children develop confidence, independence and build life-long friendships and memories while they swim, canoe, hike, and learn outdoor skills. Camp is also a place of encouragement, mentoring, and education for kids learning to self-infuse and enhance their role in self-care, a skill essential for life.
Camp Klotty Pine is designed for:
- Children ages 7-15 living with a bleeding disorder
- Children ready for the overnight, independent camp experience
- Children who want to connect with other children in the bleeding disorders community
- Children who are ready to learn about or take the first steps toward self-care and self infusion.

At Great Lakes Hemophilia Foundation we understand that families have different abilities to invest in camp. Because of this, we offer Camperships with a voluntary price option for all our Camp Klotty Pine campers. Our goal is to ensure that children living in Wisconsin, or receiving care from a Wisconsin Hemophilia Treatment Center, who would like to attend Camp Klotty Pine have the opportunity to do so. Families can choose the fee option that works best for them. All campers receive the same high quality camp experience.
Camp Klotty Pine’s Leader-In-Training (LIT) Program is a stepping stone for all former campers from Wisconsin, Minnesota, Michigan or Illinois between the ages of 15-18 to move into future camp leadership positions. This three-year comprehensive program focuses on skill building, leadership development and service learning as ways to not only build competent counselors, but ambitious leaders for the future.
At Camp Klotty Pine, we strive to provide the best experience for our campers. To fulfill this expectation, it is essential to train, practice, plan and prepare our leaders for the upcoming summer throughout the year so they are well equipped when campers arrive. LITs are required to attend trainings to learn about their new role and the foundational skills of the program. These trainings will prepare them for the upcoming camp session. Trainings provide a valuable opportunity to meet other LITs and receive thorough, hands-on training and feedback as a collective group.
In order to ensure the highest quality of both the LIT program and to our campers
there is limited availability of the program. LITs must apply each year by completing an application. LITs are trained, evaluated, and guided throughout the entire program. Acceptance in future program years is dependent upon performance, attendance and goals accomplished. Once accepted, applicants will be granted online access to complete the additional materials required for retreat and camp registrations. Stay tuned for summer 2024 applications, program dates and information.
