Camp

    Hopewell Camp & Conference Center

    Offices Located at 24 County Road 231, Oxford, MS 38655

    Diabetes camps are a special time for children and youth to enjoy all the wonders and excitement of camp life while being normal. Children and Youth with Type 1 Diabetes can enjoy all of the fun of summer camp while learning more about living with diabetes. One of the great things for the camper is that living with diabetes is the norm for the week, so everyone counts carbs, checks blood sugars, and tries to balance food, insulin, exercise and loads of fun! Campers are encouraged to develop age appropriate responsibilities for maintaining their diabetes. A resident physician, several nurses, a licensed dietitian and other support staff with and without diabetes will provide care during this rewarding camp session.
