YOU have the power to make a difference today in the life of a child or teen living with Type 1 Diabetes. Many organizations are dedicated to finding a cure for Type 1 Diabetes, but few offer support in the interim. Camp Hendon provides life-altering experiences, without the promise of a cure, but with the guarantee of an experience that makes diabetes manageable until that cure is found.
Camp Hendon's actual cost per camper for a week of residential camp is over $1,700.
Because of generous supporters like you, over 75% of our revenues come from charitable giving. Your support allows us to only charge $550 per camper and provides camperships to children with the greatest financial needs. Over 30% of our campers receive financial aid each summer and we have never turned a child away due to financial hardship.
A snapshot of our expenses:
We are relying on you, our parents, volunteers, advocates, providers, caregivers, and community at large to support our mission. Whatever form your gift takes, you can be confident that it goes towards providing pivotal services to children and teens managing Type 1 Diabetes.
