    Ho Mita Koda! That’s Sioux for “Welcome my friend!” and a mantra we embody here at Camp Ho Mita Koda. Founded in 1929 by Dr. Henry John, a pioneer in the use of insulin to treat diabetes, Camp Ho Mita Koda is the oldest and longest running diabetic summer camp in the U.S. Located on 72 picturesque acres east of Cleveland, OH in Geauga County, Camp Ho Mita Koda continues to be the highlight of hundreds of diabetic children’s summers. Our goal is to help our campers have fun and learn about their disease and how to manage it.
