The AZBD is able to organize a specialized annual conference that focuses on the work of bleeding disorder summer camps. Designed by a planning team from across the country, NACCHO (North American Camping Conference for Hemophilia Organizations) is facilitated by nationally known presenters and leaders from the bleeding disorder community who share useful camp resources and techniques. Participants can exchange resource materials, meet with representatives from NHF, pick up new ideas, and share their most successful endeavors with people from other camps. The 2024 Conference dates will be announced soon.
