Santa Speedo Dash Team Fundraising
"I didn't want to go to diabetes camp and I didn't like the idea of living in the woods for a whole week away from my family. Boy was I wrong! I cannot put in to words how thankful I am that I was able to go to diabetes camp that summer.
Camp Hamwi shaped me into the human being that I am today. I am willing to talk about my type one diabetes with strangers and I am proud to be diabetic thanks to this place. Camp is my home, and the people there - the people with the same disease - are my family forever."
2018, was the 51st year of Camp Hamwi, a residential camp for diabetic children and teens ages 7 to 17.
In 2017, 52% of camp kids received some form of financial assistance to attend camp.The Central Ohio Diabetes Association remains committed to ensuring that every child, regardless of family financial circumstances, has a positive camp experience.
Camp is just one of the programs we offer, but with your support we can help to provide our other programs and services such as diabetes education classes, nutrition counseling and emotional support for those with diabetes.
