With hundreds of camps for children with diabetes throughout the country, why should you consider Camp Hope? Because we know of no other camp whose primary focus is on the emotional and psychological aspects of diabetes in young people. We prepare them to live with diabetes, not just how to control the disease.
What We Do
At Camp Hope, we offer a residential setting with log cabins, each with it's own fireplace. The counselor to camper ratio is 1:4. We provide a medical team of physicians, physician assistants, nurses (several of whom are Certified Diabetic Educators), and pharmacists. We provide education on diabetes self-care with focus on the emotional and psychological obstacles which need to be removed for our individual success. We enjoy a week of fun activities which include swimming, hiking, miniature golf, special events field trips, games, competitive sports, and creative arts and crafts.
