Family Camp 2023
Chapter Family Campers want to encourage other member families to find out what the CHS-MC Family Camp is all about. It is a wonderful program that the current attendees value and enjoy. We invite you to contact the office and ask about camp and what to expect from a camp experience. Please have a look at: Goals-of-CHS-MC-Family-Camp 2023
2023 CHS-MC Family Camp will be held from July 16th to the 22nd at Luther Village, near Kenora Ontario. Located on the beautiful shores of Dogtooth Lake, Luther Village has much to offer including programming for children, comfortable accommodations, and activities for the whole family, hiking trails, boating, and more. Luther Village has an excellent web site: www.luthervillage.ca

Family Camp offers unique education opportunities with an experienced bleeding disorders nurse. We hope to continue to have a pediatric physiotherapists from the Manitoba Bleeding Disorders Program coming to camp attend for two days! Both the nurse and physiotherapists will be able to spend more time with families helping them with their goals towards maintaining physical wellness, transitioning to home-care, and learning to administer their medication.
2023 Theme night is Mardi Gras!
Every year Luther Village picks a theme night, starting at dinner and followed by activities. Families dress for the evening in costumes that reflect the theme for an evening of FUN. Colors are purple, gold and green- wear your best costume you will want to be seen! Masks and beads and fun hats abound -not to be missed- we will parade around!
CHS-MC has the following spots reserved: Beaver Lodge, Fox Den, Loon’s Lodge, Eagle’s Nest, Grouse Hollow, Cabin #1 and Cabin #2. You can view the cabins, Luther Village Cabins.
Due to safety and liability considerations, families are required to stay at their assigned location. There is an opportunity to discuss your lodging assignment before leaving for camp. Once you are there, you must stay where you are assigned.
