CHMK is a summer camp for kids and teens with Type 1 Diabetes (T1D). Our mission is to help children living with T1D grow in mind, body, and spirit through an outdoor camping experience that strengthens their confidence and creates a community of peers. Founded in 1929, CHMK is the oldest operating summer camp in the world for kids with T1D. CHMK’s minimal technology coupled with a non-competitive program is designed to build confidence, grow independence, encourage friendships, healthy lifestyle choices, and develop 21st-century skills. In today’s hectic and high-tech world, we believe a back-to-basics approach to outdoor recreation and plain, old fashion “fun” is crucial to building a child’s positive self-image. Therefore, we offer activities such as canoeing, kayaking, arts and crafts, soccer, swimming, archery and outdoor survival, and so much more.
