    A week long day camp in July, for children ages four through thirteen, with Type 1 Diabetes. Panther Day Camp will be held at Camp McCullough in Covington. For information on Camp McCullough, please visit their web site at: There is a \gallery\ showing pictures of their campground. The camp experience allows children with Type 1 Diabetes to meet other children with diabetes and talk with adults who have grown up with diabetes. Diabetes education is an important part of Panther Day Camp, however, the emphasis is on having fun, building friendships and sharing common concerns. Presently there is no cure for diabetes, but with medical supervision, exercise, healthy eating and insulin, a full and active life-style is possible.

    Summer 2020 will look a little different. We won’t be meeting at camp this summer… BUT we are coming to you at home! This summer, Camp McCullough will be bringing the games, crafts, Bible lessons, and cabin times to your home. Camp at Home is our way of connecting with campers and their families this summer! Families will have the opportunity to purchase a Camp at Home box that includes a letter to campers from their camp counselor, camp t-shirt, stickers, games, crafts, Bible stories, and much more! That’s not it either! Every week during July, families will receive weekly content from Camp McCullough to continue the fun of camp! Not only will we be sending you a box for your family, but your purchase of a Camp at Home box will also go towards supporting the day-to-day operations of Camp McCullough during this time. We want to make sure all families are able to get a box this summer. If you are in need of scholarship select “scholarship” under the payment option!
