As you may have seen in recent mailings, HFO will be accepting Camp Tapawingo Applications online this year. You will be able to create your own login and manage your child’s camp application on your own time. CIT and staff applications are also managed through this link.

All applications completed by June 1 will be considered for camp (with the exception of medical and immunization information which we realize may take some time to gather). Information inputted into the system is automatically saved so you can start the application, log out and all of the information will be available when you return to the site later.

Application Process

1. Click on this link.
If it doesn’t go directly to the site please copy and paste in your web browser.
2. When you first land on the site you will be allowed to create a login and password. For the camper this should be created by an adult so the application process can be managed by an adult. This does not register anyone for camp, it establishes the account for your family.
3. Once you have established your family account, you will be given the opportunity to register individuals into the family account. Click the “New Participant” button on the left side of the page in order to begin the application process. After basic information is entered you will see the camper name on the left side of the page. When you select the camper and click on it, you will see some information appear on the right side of the screen. You will want to click the “Register for a Session” button in order to begin the application process.
4. The first screen in the application process asks you to select the group in which you are registering someone.
5. The application process begins with a screen asking about financial assistance. The camp fee is $80. The actual cost of camp is approximately $1,000 per camper for the week. The amount over $80 is subsidized in order to make camp affordable for everyone. Should you have questions or need further assistance contact HFO at 541-753-0730.
6. The next screen will ask about travel insurance. We recommend you scroll to the bottom, click NO and then click the continue button.
7. The payment screen will appear next. Once you have paid the fee, your application will be official.
8. After completing the payment portion of the application you can continue the application process and it will save as you go. You have nearly 2 months to complete the application and all information will automatically be saved as you go.

A Bit of Camp History


Summer Camp: The Hemophilia Foundation of Oregon began its summer camp program in 1970, and today over 50 youngsters from Oregon and SW Washington regularly attend camp. For many of these children, their week at camp is the highlight of their summer, and it their only contact with other children that share their bleeding disorder. The camp staff includes an around the clock physician and nurse to assist in medical treatments as the need arises. A counseling staff which includes several adults with bleeding disorders (many of whom were former campers) ensures each youngster a rewarding and enjoyable summer camp experience.

The HFO Summer Camp seeks to inspire children within the bleeding disorder community to develop independence, explore, learn, make friends, and become their greater selves through a week of outrageously fun activities in a safe and secure resident camp environment.
