DYS is dedicated to providing opportunities for every family to send their child to Hot Shots Camp. We offer several ways to help you make camp fees less of a burden:
While there is no cost to enroll your camper at Hot Shots Camp, a $10 registration fee is required to secure your child's spot. We are proud to keep registration fees as low as possible- if qualifying for a full scholarship this can be the only money paid, compared to $50+ registration fees at other area diabetes camps.
We now offer several payment options. If you are interested in one of these payment plans, simply contact the office and we will set it up for you:
Full and partial scholarships are available to families who qualify. When registering, remember to complete the scholarship form if you would like to be considered for a scholarship, located with the registration forms on Campwise - the software we use to register campers. Proof of income from any parents/ guardians and a copy of the camper's insurance card are required to receive a scholarship. When you register your camper, look for the 'Camper Scholarship Application' under the Forms section in Campwise.

We strive to make sure all campers have what they need to make the camp experience a memorable one. If you are unable to afford camp supplies such as sleeping bag, beach towels, flashlights, etc. please reach out. The camper's physician must submit a letter to DYS confirming need to be eligible for this program.
