    Family Camp at Camp Ho Mita Koda is a fun 3 day/2 night, getaway for families who have a child diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes. Families will have a chance to relax, reconnect as a family, and develop friendships with other families who truly understand the challenges that a T1D diagnosis presents. We welcome all families who have a child 17 years of age or younger that have been diagnosed with T1D. Our program is adaptive and inclusive to serve all ability levels. Family Camp is the ultimate opportunity to experience the magic of summer camp at CHMK as a family! Through a specifically designed program, each family will be led through a session by the CHMK staff that includes a good balance of family time, kid interaction, adult socializing, off-the-wall fun, and the stillness of a spiritual retreat. Getting outside of the city will allow us all to turn the cell phones off, leave our computers, and enjoy valuable time as a family.

    Camp Ho Mita Koda offers a Leader in Training (LIT) program available for campers ages 16 & 17 years old and entering their sophomore year of high school.

    The CHMK Adventure Bridge program exists for campers who just cannot get enough of CHMK and want to extend their stay for an additional week! Currently, this option is available for eligible campers enrolled for both Sessions 1 & 2 for K-6 and Sessions 4 & 5 for grades 7-11. The Adventure Bridge program allows campers to remain onsite at camp through the transitional days between the two sessions to continue an uninterrupted experience. During this period, campers can still count on the high level of medical care to continue, great food, and non-stop action and adventure. We will even do your campers’ laundry to ensure they are 100% ready to tackle another full week of fun! This program is an optional add-on to enrollment and not required for attendance to both sessions, and is not eligible for the early bird discount.
