Middle Shots Camp





Middle Shots, grades 4-7, is the campers first taste of resident camp. Middle Shots is a great place for the kids to bond and make friendships that last a lifetime through fun-filled camp activities.

Little Shots Camp





Introductory experience for children entering kindergarten through grade 4. These young campers will have a fun-filled week making new friends, playing and learning a little about diabetes.

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, climbing the alpine tower, archery, or fishing.  They 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 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!

Be a part of camp!  We need talented and dedicated counselors, medical staff and other volunteers to help make camp happen.  We would love to have you.
