Congratulations To Our Nonprofit Of The Week
About the Nonprofit:
From the Nonprofits’ website About Camp Possibilities — Camp Possibilites
Camp Possibilities is an overnight camp for children with type 1 diabetes between the ages of 8 and 17 who, due to the complexity of diabetes management, often do not get the chance to go to a summer camp. While campers between the ages of 8 and 15 are considered campers, 16-and 17-year-old’s participate in the Leadership-in-Training program. Camp Possibilities welcomes a diverse population, and we foster an inclusive environment that is welcoming to all genders, ethnicities, and cultural backgrounds.
At Camp Possibilities, we offer swimming, fishing, arts and crafts projects, basketball, field games, a nature walk, talent show, dance and other activities.
We hold dedicated diabetes education sessions at camp; however, these are intended only in the spirit of providing support, information and encouragement to our campers. Camp Possibilities is a camp for children with diabetes, not a diabetes boot camp. Some of the most valuable educational opportunities come in the form of teachable moments which occur when the campers interact with our medical staff and their counselors during insulin administration and throughout the day.
Our volunteers number over 100 and collectively give over 7,500 hours of their time to make camp happen. We simply would not exist without their generosity, caring and expertise. Our medical staff, consisting of pediatric endocrinologists and nurse practitioners, registered nurses, certified diabetes educators, registered dietitians and others collectively give well over $125,000 of their time, knowledge and service. Our counselors and recreation staff are comprised of college students and professionals from the community.
Camp Possibilities is a 501 (c) (3) tax exempt (ID#51-0412903) organization established in 2002.Camp Possibilities
