Fall Family Camp: October 27-29, 2023
Never been to camp before? Recently diagnosed? Camp veteran who can’t get enough?
Family Camp is just for you! Camp Hertko Hollow’s Family Camp is focused on providing inclusive family-centered programming that allows families to participate in camp activities, connect with other families living with diabetes, and spend quality time together as a family. This weekend is a great opportunity for families with newly diagnosed children or children who haven’t attended summer camp yet. Families get to learn first-hand what the summer camp experience is about, meet our staff, and hear from other families how Camp Hertko Hollow has changed their experience with diabetes.
Come join us—unplug, enjoy the beautiful outdoors, and make lasting memories as a family!
Registration is now open for Fall Family Camp! Join us this fall for a Hertko Holloween themed weekend. This weekend is open to both new and returning camp families. We will have all the usual camp fun with additional activities to celebrate Halloween and connect with other Type 1 families.
