About the Camp

Camp Korelitz is a week-long residential camp for children living with type 1 or type 2 diabetes. Camp Korelitz will be held at beautiful Camp Joy, a 315 acre camp site nestled in the beautiful rolling hills of Warren County in Clarksville, Ohio between Cincinnati and Dayton.

Campers enjoy meeting other children with diabetes and spending time outdoors while participating in swimming, canoeing, arts and crafts, ropes courses, climbing walls, archery, and nutrition and diabetes education games and discussions. Campers are supervised 24 hours a day by doctors, nurses, dietitians and counselors thoroughly trained in diabetes management. Join us for a week of fun and adventure you will never forget!
