Summer Camp

We can’t wait to see you all back at camp in 2021!

Our medical team is continuously updating procedures to ensure safe, in-person programming for our upcoming camp season. After registering for camp, you will receive updates via email if any changes are made due to Covid-19. 

IF it becomes impossible for DYFI to run Camp Until a Cure in-person safely, 100% of registration fees will be refunded. 

At this time, we ask that families sign up for no more than 2 sessions since space is limited.


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.
