Beautify Bearskin


2018-2020 improvement plan.pngSince 1960, Bearskin Meadow Camp has served as DYF’s home, welcoming generations of children, teens, and families affected by type one diabetes. It is a place of joy and community – a powerful combination when we are surrounded by “our people” in such a spectacular environment.

Behind the structures that make Bearskin Meadow Camp, come significant improvements that we must do to ensure that we are fulfilling our mission in the safe, welcoming, environment that is our camp. Last year, DYF launched the Beautify Bearskin Campaign to revitalize the facility and ensure that camp is ready to meet the needs of our campers for decades to come. Thanks to the support of generous donors, we completed ten much-needed maintenance and improvement projects with a total cost of over $130,000.

It is our pleasure to announce that, in addition to the funds already raised, DYF recently received a $250,000 gift from an anonymous donor to support our efforts to Beautify Bearskin. This investment funds a significant portion of the projects on our list and work will begin once camp sessions end in August and will continue into 2020.

We are in the home stretch! To complete the remaining projects on the improvement plan, we need to raise an additional $160,000. Please help us reach our goal — your investment will have an immediate impact for our T1D campers and their families and those to come in the future.Donate today to help us Beautify Bearskin!
