Diabetes Youth Services works hard to ensure no child is ever turned away from camp for financial reasons. In 2022 43% of campers applied for scholarship, rewarding over $20,000! Our camp fees are just a fraction of the true cost for each camper, and we rely on donations to make up the rest.

We rely on people like you to help close the gap!

You can make a real difference in the life of a child diagnosed with type 1 diabetes. There are many ways you can support DYS. We value and welcome contributions of any size. Every gift helps to support the unique programs and services that DYS provides to our community.

If you have any questions regarding your donation, please call us at 419-291-1234 or email us at [email protected]

Thank you for making a difference to local children!
