“Camp is a MUST for children with diabetes. It’s where they can be around others who completely understand the struggles and turn something hard into something positive.” – Parent of Participant
DYF would thank to all of it supporters throughout 2016. You have enabled us to serve almost 2,000 individuals, provide almost $500,000 in scholarships and subsidiaries, and most importantly, inspire children and families to live long, healthy and confident lives with T1D. As we prepare for 2017, we ask for your support with a year end gift to launch us into another life changing year.
Hear from the DYF community to understand why camp is so important.

We’re always looking for volunteers to partner with us making camp a fantastic experience for all who attend. We couldn’t do it without all of the camp and medical staff that work with us. Check out what it’s like to be a camp counselor and part of the medical staff!
