Camp Has No Age Limit!
When you’re here at Camp Ho Mita Koda, you not only have a full slate of recreational camp activities at your disposal, you also spend your days surrounded by the natural beauty and magic of CHMK. While we have plenty to offer during each Family Camp experience, you can choose what you wish to do with your time. We offer a world unto itself – a place where time seems to pass more slowly, causing you to wonder what decade you’re in.
Family Camp at Camp Ho Mita Koda is a fun 3 day/2 night getaway for families who have a child diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes. Through a specifically designed program, each family will be led through a session by the CHMK staff that includes a good balance of family time, kid interaction, adult socializing, off-the-wall fun, and the stillness of a spiritual retreat. Most importantly though, your family will get to spend time together, building deeper relationships and meeting other families who will quickly become your lifelong ‘camp friends’.
