Campers will attend a fun program that is geared toward meeting their needs in relation to diabetes. Kids who join us at Hodia Buddy Camp will meet new friends, learn about Camp Hodia programs, and have a fun time while showing their buddies that diabetes does not limit them from doing all the fun things everyone else does. This session of Buddy Camp will be held at the Idaho State University Challenge Course! We have worked with the challenge course crew to create a neat experience for all ages and ropes course comfort levels. We will have guided low ropes team building, some higher ropes elements, lots of friendship and some learning as we go. We hope you will join us!

Camp Fees

Session 1 Fee

$25/camper

This is a per camper fee, each the T1D and buddy need to register separately.

Session 2 Fee

(This includes the water fun and dinner for your family!)

$50/family

The true cost of camp. This is the fee for campers outside of our service area and for those who can pay the fee. Selecting this option allows us to spend donated funds on subsidy and/or campership of families with true financial need.

*Camperships

Thanks to many generous donors, Camp Hodia has never turned a child away for financial reasons. Simply sign-up for camp and complete the Campership Application. Camperships are based on financial need. If you have an extenuating financial situation and need a full campership, or need accommodations to pay the registration fee, please call us.
