Send a Child with Diabetes to Camp

Camps for children with diabetes provide an excellent opportunity for a child to meet and share experiences with other children who have the disease. Offering swimming, canoeing, horseback riding, and other camp activities, Camp Midicha stands out as a special place where all of the campers, ages 8 to 16, have diabetes. In addition to providing a wide range of traditional camp activities, Camp Midicha offers fun, interactive medical sessions every day to teach campers about all aspects of successful diabetes management.

You can help. Just $25.00 helps cover the cost of a day at camp.
