About BDAI

The Bleeding Disorders Alliance Illinois (BDAI) supports families affected by inherited bleeding disorders such as Hemophilia and von Willebrand disease by providing its members with the unbiased medical information and resources that allow them to live a healthy and active lifestyle. This neutral information is especially important for families seeking answers and support soon after the initial diagnosis.

BDAI also fosters a welcoming community for families to meet, interact and share information and advice. Through education and support, BDAI helps its members advocate on their own behalf with public and private insurance providers, medical services and government agencies, while representing the bleeding community in the world at large.

Camperships Available--Help BDAI cover the cost of camp

BDAI is committed to providing quality camping experiences to children with hereditary bleeding disorders. We work year-round to raise funds and solicit donations from our Camp Partners and the community. However, camp costs an average of $1,000 per camper. We do ask that our families help us meet a portion of the cost for this program by covering a portion of the total cost. The cost per camper is $250/camper.

The Colburn-Keenan Foundation is a charitable organization dedicated to improving the health and well being of individuals and families living with chronic illnesses, with priority placed on those living with bleeding disorders. The Foundation offers a campership program to help families cover the costs of sending their child(ren) to camp.

We're asking for your help this year by applying for these camperships. In doing so you will help to ensure our camp's future and its longevity for future generations of children to enjoy. For more information for the Camperships – including the application – click the links below.
