About the Camp

The American Diabetes Association's residential camp program for children with diabetes is held at the Tall Oaks Conference Center property which is owned and operated by the Christian Church of Greater Kansas City. Camp offers children with diabetes the opportunity to learn how to enjoy a healthy, active lifestyle while managing their diabetes. At Camp Planet D, children are surrounded by people who face the same challenge of living with diabetes, from fellow campers to adult staff members. Camp activities feature swimming, horseback riding, outdoor skills, volleyball, basketball, archery and tons of other fun activities, plus a few surprises! Scholarships are available.

This woodland setting is a wonderful way to commune with nature while staying in close proximity to several centers of population. Tall Oaks is located just 15 miles from both the western boundary of the Greater Kansas City region and the NE corner of Lawrence, KS, as well as 33 minutes from downtown Kansas City, MO.

The American Diabetes Association is committed to providing educational information and referral services for children with diabetes and their families, advocating for fair and quality treatment of children with diabetes in schools, and increasing federal funding for diabetes research.
