Camp Wannaklot: The First-time Camper Experience

By Jeff Cornett, RN, MSN, Vice President of Research and Public Policy | December 17, 2019

Since the early 1990s, Hemophilia of Georgia has offered Camp Wannaklot each summer for young people with inherited bleeding disorders. The week-long residential camp, held at Camp Twin Lakes in Rutledge, accepts eligible campers ages 7 to 17. For parents, sending their child away for a week for the first time can be difficult. In July 2019, we talked to a first-time camper, Nate, age 7, and his mom Amy before, during, and after camp about their experience. We also talked to Greg, the Lead Counselor in Nate's cabin.

Do You Know the Symptoms of a Bleed?

By Michelle Lowe, BSN, RN-BC, Director of Nursing | December 17, 2019

Whether you're a mom, a dad, a school nurse, or a daycare provider, knowing the signs of a bleed can help a child recognize and treat a bleed when it begins. Those with severe hemophilia may experience bleeds frequently enough to recognize the symptoms early, but for anyone with mild or moderate hemophilia, they may not know because they don't experience bleeds as frequently.
