Leadership Pre-Camp Retreat July 8–10
When and Where?
The Hemophilia and Thrombosis Center (HTC) is proud to once again sponsor the summer camp program
Who Should Attend?
Why Attend Camp?
The purpose of camp is to learn about bleeding disorders, develop skills, and have fun! Campers will have the opportunity to meet new friends and participate in a variety of traditional camp activities. As always, we have included educational components with the goal of encouraging self-confidence and independence.
Many campers have learned to perform self-infusion, experienced teamwork, and discovered new skills during the week of camp. Staff at the Hemophilia & Thrombosis Center (HTC) and Rocky Mountain Village wants this to be a wonderful experience that creates a wealth of fond memories for your camper.
What does it cost?
Each family is required to pay a non-refundable $75 deposit. The remainder of the camp cost, approximately $1000 per camper, is underwritten by other sources. If you have questions or need additional information, please call Brad Benne at 406.600.2554. Scholarship forms are available. Scholarships will be granted on an individual basis.
Help send a child to camp!
Make a dream come true this summer! Your contribution will send a youth to hemophilia summer camp at Mile High Camp in Colorado. Your support makes a lasting difference in the lives of children with a bleeding disorder.

Patient Assistance Programs
A great new resource from the NHF:
“While the ACA’s implementation did many great things to provide access to healthcare coverage for the hemophilia and related bleeding disorders community, affordability still remains an issue for many. NHF’s Public Policy Team is often asked about resources available to assist patients with paying their premiums or out-of-pocket costs. In response to your inquiries, we have developed this document detailing patient assistance programs that remain available to members of the bleeding disorders community. Note the "accurate as of" date in red at the top right-hand corner. As changes are made to any of the programs listed, we will do our best to update the Patient Assistance document, and make the most recent version available to you.
“We have mentioned in previous updates that some insurers are not accepting third party assistance for qualified health plans (QHPs) purchased in the health insurance marketplace. The list currently includes certain insurers in Oregon, Montana, Idaho, New York, Nebraska and Louisiana. Therefore, it is possible that consumers will not be able to use an assistance program if they are enrolled in one of these plans. ”
