Camp for Kids with Diabetes

img-camp.jpg

Chris Dudley Basketball Camp - Established 1995

Camp for kids with diabetes between the ages of 10 and 17 are among the variety of programs and services offered by the Chris Dudley Foundation. The goal of this camp (and for the clinics, as well) is to give kids a sense of how to play a vigorous sport while managing their diabetes.  

Camp 2014:  July 27 - August 1

What is the camp like?

Every year kids with diabetes from all over the country ages 10-17 travel to Vernonia, Oregon to the Chris Dudley Basketball Camp to participate in this one week experience of a lifetime. Each day, camp is filled with practicing basketball skills, intense basketball tournaments, fun contests and games, working one-on-one with one of our 25 experienced coaches and counselors and learning new ways to improve your game from Chris Dudley himself.

At camp, campers also enjoy taking a dip in the pool and entering the Splash Contest, playing a friendly game of volleyball, throwing horseshoes, taking a slide down the infamous slip 'n slide, putting together an act for the yearly talent show, checking out the cool gear in the camp store, and building friendships with other kids with diabetes, that will last a lifetime.

Other facts about camp:

With camp being limited to only 75 campers, campers receive a lot of individual attention on the courts.

Each camper is assigned to a team for the week, with a coach and a counselor.

We have been honored to have many guests come to camp such as Bob Medina, Trainer for the Portland Trailblazers. Terry Porter, former NBA player. Dr. Matt Corcoran from diabetes training. Herb Brown, assistant coach in the NBA. Jeff Bannink from Team Type 1. Jerome Kersey, former NBA player.

Campers have doctors, nurses, dietitians and over 25 other trained staff members to help with camper's diabetic needs.
