Sending Kids to Camp - Give the the skills they need to live a happy, healthy life!
Each summer, we host 6,000 campers and 2,000 volunteers and it requires a significant investment. In addition to all the trappings of a traditional summer camp—food, fun and adventure—we also provide skilled medical staff 24/7, insulin, test strips, glucose tabs, syringes and more.

That's just a sampling of what it takes to make camp come together. Diabetes is expensive!
For families raising a child (or children) with diabetes, annual medical expenses can total nearly $10,000 per child. The American Diabetes Association is committed to making sure that money is never a barrier to attending camp. At least 40% of families qualify for need-based financial aid to cover some or all of their family contribution.
Your support will help fill the funding gap, provide financial aid to families in need, and help children build the relationships, skills and confidence they need to thrive.
