We offer support to our families in a variety of ways!

Northwest Sickle Cell Camp 

Sickle Cell Camp is a four-day overnight camp with an emphasis on having fun while learning more about Sickle Cell Disease and its management. Any child between the age of 8 and 15, who has Sickle Cell Disease and lives in the Pacific Northwest, is eligible to attend camp as a camper. If the child is 16 or 17, then can attend and help at camp as a LIT (Leader-in-Training). Please click here for the LIT application. Campers may also bring a sibling based on space available.
