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

After months of monitoring Covid-19 alongside our camp partners, we have decided that the safest option for Camp Klotty Pine this year is to go virtual! Join us this August 10-14 as we reimagine Camp Klotty Pine!

Camp is going to look different this summer, but the energy, friendships, and fun will be virtually at your fingertips! Camp has never been about the location, it’s about the feelings that you carry with you when you leave. Camp is a state of mind, after all.

Stay connected to GLHF on social media, our Events Page and our News section for information about camp!

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.

Leader-In-Training Program

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.

The LIT Program includes two training sessions in the spring and the day prior to camp where participants will learn about positive behavior management, interpersonal relationships and maintaining a safe and fun environment for our campers. LITs are required to arrive the day prior to the camp session for orientation.

Family Camp

Family Camp is designed to prepare families with a child living with a bleeding disorder for an independent, overnight summer camp experience, and help them gain comfort in sending their child away to camp. Families spend the weekend together canoeing, hiking, doing archery and arts and crafts, and sharing alongside campfires. They stay in comfortable cabins with shared sleeping arrangements.

Family Camp is designed for:

  • Children, ages 5-9 living with a bleeding disorder and their immediate family, although ALL families living with a bleeding disorder are invited to attend
  • Families wishing to understand the benefits of summer camp programs
  • Families looking to get away from the hustle and bustle of life and spend quality time as a family among their peers in the bleeding disorders community

Family Camp is a first step along the way to their child’s independent summer camp experience.


Registration opening this summer.
