Taking on Type 1 Diabetes

Camp Hendon
"The Best Place on Earth"

Camp Hendon is an all-volunteer camp for children with Type 1 diabetes in Kentucky and the surrounding region. 

At Camp Hendon we give children with diabetes a life changing experience that empowers them to take control of their journey with diabetes.  We achieve this mission through a week-long residential camping program for approximately 150 children with diabetes between the ages of 8-17.

Since Camp Hendon’s founding in 1965, camp has given thousands of kids with diabetes a chance to have a fun, safe, and medically supervised camping experience. The “Camping Experience” is transformative and adds joy, hope, and confidence to young lives. Lifelong friends are made and perceived limitations of life with diabetes fade away.

The focus is on fun, but the lessons learned are critical to long-term success.  Children who have access to quality diabetes management education at a young age can reduce their risk of diabetes-related complications and often display greater resilience in coping with their diabetes.  Camp is a child-friendly atmosphere where healthy habits are reflected by adult role models, most of whom are also living with diabetes.
