2017 Summer Camp Volunteer-Medical Professional 

Hemophilia of Iowa and UIHC Hemophilia Treatment Center invite medical professionals outside of the treatment center to join in our efforts to offer a rewarding camp for our youth aged 6-17 as they come together for our annual Summer Camp hosted at Camp Tanager. 

​Medical education takes place at various times through camp but the biggest medical time we spend is on infusions.  Infusion time generally takes place between 8 and 9 a.m. each day.  Of course, there are some unscheduled infusions and medical needs that are needed throughout each day. 

Please consider joining us to offer this time for families.  Camp is a time for families to enjoy a week without having to stress about the care of their child with a bleeding disorder.  Our goal each year is for each camper to leave more independent in their self-care as they were prior to joining us at camp.

Thank you in advance for considering attending.
If you have specific questions, please direct them to Michelle Krantz at 319-356-2890 or michelle-krantz@uiowa.edu.
Registration questions can be directed to Kari Atkinson at hoi_president@yahoo.com or 319-721-3964.

2017 Summer Camp Volunteer-Non-Medical

Hemophilia of Iowa and UIHC Hemophilia Treatment Center invite you to join in our efforts to offer a rewarding camp for our youth aged 6-17 as they come together for our annual Summer Camp hosted at Camp Tanager. 

Volunteer times would be depending on the day you are available to attend and what our activities are.  New for 2017 is our Elective options for campers to pick and choose what they would like to participate in.  We need your help to offer this structure.  These will primarily be offered to our campers on Monday and Wednesday.  We need volunteers for Bells Farm in the fishing area, swim area, lunch/snack area, sunscreen watchers etc.  For Lost Island, we will need help with taking groups to enjoy the rides so we can have 2-3 chaperones with each group.  One to go 1st, last and stay behind if kids don't wish to ride.  It takes a village to host camp and we are happy you are considering joining us!  The field trips you are welcome to join our campers at the venue or meet at camp and follow the bus.   

​Thank you in advance for considering attending.
If you have medical questions, please direct them to Michelle Krantz at 319-356-2890 or michelle-krantz@uiowa.edu.
