Financial Assistance to American Diabetes Association Camps
Regardless of your ability to pay for Camp, the American Diabetes Association is committed to providing a camp experience to children living with diabetes.
We strive to keep the Camp fee as low as possible for families. Through the Association's year-round fundraising efforts and generous donors, we only charge families 50% of the true cost to provide camp for a child.
In addition, camperships are available to help families pay the Camp fee. The amount of assistance awarded is based on financial need. We use a sliding scale to determine if you qualify for partial or full campership.
How do I apply for a Campership to an American Diabetes Association Camp?
It's easy to apply for financial assistance/campership to an American Diabetes Association Camp. First you and your child need to decide which Camp to go to.
- Register your child for Camp.
- Request the Campership Application from your local American Diabetes Association.
- Complete the application.
- Submit the application with a copy of your 1040, 1040EZ or 1040A as your proof of income to your local American Diabetes Association.
After your local American Diabetes Association has received your completed camp application and financial assistance application, they will notify you of the amount of assistance you will receive.
