At the Diabetes Youth Foundation of Indiana, our mission and our passion is to help children
and teens with diabetes prepare for lifelong success in living with
their condition by providing affordable, educational, safe,
developmental, and fun programming and opportunities where we instruct,
challenge, encourage and support the child both in the management of
their disease and in their personal growth and development. We do this
through residential camping, our DYFI Ambassador program, family camp
weekends, teen camp weekends, teen adventure trips, community outreach
opportunities, and day-camps for 5-8 year-olds. It is our policy that
every child has the opportunity to attend regardless of ability to pay.
Diabetes affects so many youth each year; it is our goal to provide
programming to these youth to help them grow with their disease, address
the psychosocial issues caused by this disease, and educate these kids
to prevent future complications while allowing them to take
responsibility of this disease.
