Middle Shots Camp

Little Shots Camp
July 13-16, 2020
Introductory experience for children entering kindergarten through grade 4. In addition to games, crafts, and fun activities, our campers learn tools to help them manage their diabetes independently.
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!
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.
