Applications for Camp I-Vy 2017 are available here


This summer we are using a new online camp application platform called CampDocs. Since this is our first summer using CampDocs we have put together a brief guide which you can download here


The application deadline is Friday June 2nd. Only applications completed by this point will be considered. Acceptance packets will be sent out the following week. 


A limited number of spots are available for Camp I-Vy 2017. A completed application does not guarantee a spot at camp. Priority is given to applicants with a bleeding disorder (including carriers) and then siblings. Each application is time-stamped when it is received and at the deadline applications are reviewed in the order received. 

About Camp I-Vy:

Camp I-Vy is a residential summer camp program for children with bleeding disorders that takes place every summer in partnership with Camp Huston in beautiful Gold Bar, WA. 


At Camp I-Vy, campers can expect: games, songs, hikes, team-building, cookouts, archery, swimming, crafts, variety shows, friends, nature and some pretty fantastic campfires!


Camp I-Vy is planned and facilitated in partnership with Camp Huston. Camp Huston is an American Camp Association (ACA) accredited camp and a leader in summer camp programs both in Washington and nationally. 



Medical Care At Camp:

Camp I-Vy features an on-site medical staff comprised of the top bleeding disorder medical professionals in the State of Washington from the Washington Center for Bleeding Disorders and Seattle Children's Hospital


Throughout the week, campers will learn about their bleeding disorder and (if applicable) practice their self-infusion skills in a safe and supportive environment.


Campers that infuse themselves for the first time at camp are awarded the Big Stick Award, which is presented at closing campfire each summer. The Big Stick presentation is one of the highlights of our year!  

Registration:

Children with a bleeding disorder and their siblings ages 7-15 are eligible to apply for Camp I-Vy. Affected campers are given priority in the registration process. For families with younger children Camp I-Vy Jr. is a great fit! 


16 & 17 year olds can apply to be a part of our Counselor-in-Training (CIT) program. Adults 18+ can apply to be a volunteer counselor at camp. 


Application materials are typically available in April each year.
