Bleeding Disorders Camps

Arkansas Children’s has a unique partnership with MedCamps of Arkansas, Inc., a not-for-profit project of the Arkansas Chapter of The American Academy of Pediatrics, which provides summer medical camps dedicated to children who are diagnosed with specific medical conditions. Through MedCamps, our patients are able to participate in summer medical camps, which include Camp Aldersgate and Camp Nopokamee.
