The fee for this 4-day camp is $40. Learn more about camp costs and where to submit payment.
Your child must have labs drawn prior to attending camp, any time between June 1 and July 30, 2018. If your child is a patient at Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh of UPMC, you do not need to send a copy of the lab results with your camp application. We will have access to the database for your child's labs. Charts will be reviewed for compliance to this request as of August 1. Patients will not be permitted to attend camp if labs are not obtained by that date. Additionally, all intestine transplant recipients must have an endoscopy completed within the last year, prior to camp. Endoscopy and biopsy reports will be accessed from the hospital database as of August 1, 2018.
Campers who are not patients at Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh of UPMC and receive care from other transplant centers must also submit the following items:
If you would like your child to attend Camp Chihopi but other wise are unable to attend camp due to the registration fee and the expense of travel and lodging, please contact Bev Kosmach-Park at (412-692-6115). Limited contributions may be available to partially defray costs, particularly if you live greater than 100 miles from Pittsburgh.
If you are interested in having your child’s annual clinic visit before or after Camp Chihopi, please schedule an appointment for Monday, August 6 or Monday, August 13 by calling 412-692-6125. Local patients are encouraged to attend Transplant Clinic at another convenient time because of the increased number of out-of-town patients who are returning to Pittsburgh at this time for camp. If your child has a scheduled clinic appointment before or after camp, please have labs drawn at home within two weeks of your child’s clinic appointment. Please fax your child’s lab results to his/her coordinator at 412-692-6116 prior to August 6 so that lab results will be available for review at your child’s clinic appointment.
If your child would like to attend camp, please download and complete the camp registration and consent forms and mail, email or fax them by the indicated date.
