Diabetes Camps - Kentucky
Camp Hendon gives children with diabetes a life changing experience that empowers them to take control of their journey with diabetes. We achieve this mission thru a week-long residential camping program for approximately 100 children with diabetes between the ages of 8-17. Our camp facility is in Leitchfield, KY and is staffed by professional camp activity staff and volunteer adult counselors (many with diabetes), nurses, certified diabetes educators, and many others who help make camp the best place on earth.
Camp Hendon is an all-volunteer camp for children with diabetes in Kentucky and Southern Indiana. Since Camp Hendon's founding in 1965, we have given thousands of kids with diabetes a chance to have a fun, safe, and medically supervised camping experience. The "Camping Experience" is transformative and adds joy, hope, and confidence to young lives. Lifelong friends are made and perceived limitations of life with diabetes fade away.
So, why don't you come along...

The formulary for these, as stated by CVS/Caremark (my pharmacy benefits provider), covers all test strips, lancets, and control solutions. I dutifully get my doctor to write up prescriptions for all of my testing needs, submit...
