Cohen It isn’t easy staying optimistic as a teenager, but 17 year-old Cohen has mastered the art of positivity: “No matter what happens in your life you have to stay positive.” This positivity was contagious according to Cohen who was responsible this summer for a camper named Micah.

“I used to be really self-conscious about my hemophilia but Micah showed me that you could still be happy and enjoy life with a medical condition,” said Cohen after spending the better part of the week with Micah. The two were able to form a close friendship after working side by side all week, allowing Cohen to gain a better understanding of “balancing friendship and responsibility.”

The activities and experiences at Camp Joy teach campers like Cohen valuable health and life skills over the years: “camp taught me how to self-infuse and how to properly handle a bleed, and how to become an active, responsible person.” These skills will not only serve Cohen for a lifetime, but because of his role as a camp leader he will impact countless others as well.

The excitement of learning and growing at Camp Joy all begins with our first connection with you.

We are excited to get the opportunity to meet you and show you camp! If it is easier, just give Tia a call at 513-478-9282
