National Youth Camps

National Annual Camp for Young People From HD Families

NZ was the first country in the world to organise camps for young people from HD families.

The Assocations are thrilled with and committed to the success, and the young people have grown to depend on the camp.

After describing these camps at an International Huntington's Assocations Conference, we were asked if we had had any research done to prove value/usefulness of these expensive camps. Alison Grey was commisioned and her review of the camps convinced us that they were successful and must be continued.
