2022 Hot Shots Camp Open House

Interested in camp but have questions? We will be hosting a Hot Shots Camp Open House on Sunday May 22, 2022 at Navarre Park in Toledo for families to enjoy food, games, and learn more about DYS Camp and other programs! This event is FREE to attend!

Why Hot Shot Camp?

Camp is all about firsts! We take every opportunity to encourage the kids to try new ways to manage their diabetes. Campers experience a wide variety of fun firsts outside of their diabetes as well – first time staying away from home, canoeing, archery, or fishing. Campers will have a blast enjoying all the fun activities camp has to offer and learn strategies for managing diabetes.


DYS has a long history of campers making friends to whom they can relate. Every child living with diabetes has felt alone at some point, but camp is a unique place where they know that they are never alone.

At Hot Shots Camp your child will learn skills, form friendships, and make memories they will cherish for a lifetime!
