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.
year, hundreds of kids from all over Indiana and surrounding areas come
to Camp Until A Cure. The Diabetes Youth Foundation of Indiana
educates, encourages, and empowers children and teens living with Type 1
diabetes to live a healthy life with this sometimes difficult and
confusing disease. It costs over $1000 for one week of camp for one
child. Your donation will help this child have the opportunity to come
to camp where they will learn skills on how to take care of their
diabetes while having fun being a normal kid. They benefit from a full
time medical staff, who volunteer their time, and hands on learning.
