Children’s Area

Take a break with the kids in our Children's Area with lots of activities including coloring, Lincoln Logs, legos and more. 

This year, the children's area will be sponsored by:


Their mission is to provide children with Type 1 diabetes an educational camp experience in a safe and fun environment.

Camp UPeninsulin encourages children with diabetes to have fun and learn new skills from local diabetes experts. Summer camp provides an opportunity for children to interact with one another while learning good diabetes self-care in a medically safe environment.

Thanks to the generosity of our donors, Camp UPeninsulin has been able to provide a low-cost/free camp, so that children living in the U.P. are able to attend regardless of financial status. Our registration fee in 2023 was $20.

Our next camp session will take place August 6-10, 2024.

Camp is for kids 9-17 with Type 1 Diabetes

If your child is under the age of 9, please reach out to us! We may have a spot for them at camp!
