Koda Connection

Koda Connection Parents’ Group

Koda Connection is a T1D parent and caregiver educational and support program of Camp Ho Mita Koda. Every other month, we recruit an array of key voices to host a series of conversations: parents, health coaches, educators, dietitians, T1D doctors and nurses, and of course the CHMK summer camp crew.

We invite you to join us for an hour or two of camaraderie and support, even if you choose not to engage in the discussion. You do not have to be a Camp Ho Mita Koda participant in order to join us. For the foreseeable future, all meetings will be held via Zoom.

To join the Koda Connections mailing list and remain up-to-date on all offerings, please complete the Interest Form.
