Donate to Camp Hendon
All of our camp staff are volunteers, and we seek donations from companies for medical and treatment supplies. The true cost per camper with diabetes for a week of residential camp is over $1,200. Through donations and community support we are able to reduce that cost to around $500 per child.
Not all families are in a position to send their child to camp so we offer needs-based camperships to children so that no child should be turned away because of financial need.
Our goal is to maintain $20,000 yearly reserves for camperships alone; this does not include medical supplies and general operating costs, (mailings, training, insurance, etc.).
We are relying on you, the parents, volunteers, advocates, providers, caregivers, and community at large to support keeping Camp Hendon serving the children of Kentucky and Southern Indiana.
Any tax-deductible donation you can make to this cause will be greatly appreciated.
Since 1965, Camp Hendon has served over 3000 children with diabetes in Kentucky and Southern Indiana.
