Summer Camp

Each year, hundreds of children and teens with diabetes from all over Indiana call Camp Until A Cure home for the month of June. While at camp, they swim, hike, do arts & crafts, take creek walks, play paintball, climb the ropes course, have campfires with songs and skits, do activities centered around diabetes management and skills, and much more!

This institution is an equal opportunity provider.
