Camp Chihopi 2016 will be held from Thursday, August 11 through Sunday, August 14 at the Emma Kaufmann Camp along Cheat lake near Morgantown, W.Va., about 90 miles south of Pittsburgh, Pa.
Camp activities include boating and tubing on Cheat Lake, swimming, horseback riding, arts and crafts, land sports, music activities, and cookouts. There is a special all-camp activity on Saturday afternoon and the most popular event, the annual Camp Party is on Saturday night. Learn more about Camp Chihopi activities.
The fee for this 4-day camp is $40. Learn more about camp costs and where to submit payment.
If you would like your child to attend Camp Chihopi but otherwise are unable to attend camp due to the registration fee and the expense of travel and lodging, please contact Bev Kosmach-Park (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 check-up at Transplant Clinic before camp, please schedule an appointment for Wednesday, August 10 by calling 412-692-6125. Local patients are encouraged to attend clinic at another convenient time due to the size of this clinic. If your child will be seen in clinic on August 10, please have labs drawn at home within two weeks of your clinic appointment. Results should be faxed to your coordinator at 412-692-6116 prior to August 10 so lab results will be available to review at your child’s appointment. Additionally, if you prefer to stay in the Pittsburgh area after camp, you can arrange for your child to be seen in Transplant Clinic on Monday, August 15.
Your child must have labs drawn prior to attending camp, any time between June 1 and August 5, 2016. 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 access the database for your child’s labs. Charts will be reviewed for compliance to this request as of August 5. 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 5, 2016.
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 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.

"It is awesome to get together and not have to worry about your condition; everyone else has gone through the same thing. Since everyone knows what you’re going through, it's easy to talk to and communicate with each other."
