Camp Hendon is an all-volunteer camp for children ages 8-17 with diabetes in Kentucky and Southern Indiana. Since Camp Hendon’s founding in 1965, Camp has given thousands of kids with diabetes a chance to have a fun, safe, and medically supervised camping experience. The “Camping Experience” is transformative and adds joy, hope and confidence to young lives. Lifelong friends are made and perceived limitations of life with diabetes fade away.

The focus is on fun, but the lessons learned are critical to long-term success.  Children who have access to quality diabetes management education at a young age can reduce their risk of diabetes-related complications and often display greater resilience in coping with their diabetes.  Camp is a child-friendly atmosphere where healthy habits are reflected by adult role models living with diabetes as well. Diabetes camp also offers the same benefits of any other residential camp-games, new friends, and a lot of fun!health care professionals, mentors and caring, well-trained counselors.
