DYS Hot Shot Camps:

DYS has designed age-specific camp programs for children living with type 1 diabetes. At camp, kids get to spend time with other kids who are growing up facing the same challenges. Camp provides comprehensive learning experiences in a recreational setting. All activities are designed to promote confidence and teach techniques for managing diabetes while having fun at the same time!

We understand that DYS has a wide service area.  If you live too far away from Day Camp to drive in everyday, Ronald McDonald House can accommodate you.  They do not take reservations, but will take your information and your needs for camp.  You can get confirmation prior to arrival.  If rooms are not available or if you do not require overnight accommodations, you can use the facility as a day guest.  Day guests can have their meals, relax in the house and siblings can use the playground. For more information, download the information and referral forms. You can return referrals to referrals@rmhctoledo.org. If you have any questions about the procedure, please call the house at 419-471-4663. 

We want every child with diabetes to experience camp.  Let us help you.  If you registration, travel, or fees a burden, please call us.  We may be able to help your child attend camp.
