Join us at Family Day Camp on Saturday, July 16, for a day of fun camp activities at Camp Holiday Trails in Charlottesville, VA. The event will include arts and crafts; canoeing and kayaking; archery; the challenge course, which features ziplining and rock wall climbing; and traditional camp songs.
Family Day Camp is open to families impacted by an inherited bleeding disorder and is designed for children between the ages of 5-17 that are camp-ready and/or looking to attend camp in the next two years.
Lodging is available at the Sleep Inn and Suites Monticello for Friday, July 15 and Saturday, July 16. On Saturday, July 16th Family Day Camp will begin at CHT at 9:00 am and run through 4:00 pm and then that evening in Charlottesville you will not want to miss the Educational Dinner – “Gene Therapy Jeopardy” presented by BioMarin (restaurant TBD.) *Educational dinner is optional and is not a part of the Family Day Camp at CHT. There is no programming on Sunday.
CHT requires that all staff, campers, and volunteers will need to be fully vaccinated for COVID-19 as per the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) with no exemptions. All participants (children and adults) will need to provide proof of vaccination by providing a copy of their vaccination card at least 3 weeks prior to event (Friday, June 24). Also, additional mitigation efforts will be utilized: masks and social distancing when indoors, sanitizing/cleaning on a regular basis along with ventilation and moving activities outside as much as possible to decrease the possibility of exposure to COVID-19.
