The traditional 20-day summer sessions span June and July each year. Approximately 250 campers, ages 5 to 18, fill the cabins and campgrounds for three weeks of fun, fellowship, medical education and lifestyle enhancement. The length and intensity of these sessions are the reasons campers obtain successful diabetes management.
First Session: June 9 – 28, 2019
Second Session: June 30 – 19, 2019
Third Session: July 21 – August 9, 2019
“My son said it was the best three weeks of his entire life and he cannot wait until next year!”
“It was awesome, no it was better than awesome! My son had the time of his life!”
We offer two convenient stay over weekends for campers who would like to attend two consecutive 3-week sessions. There is an additional fee for this service. The sessions will consist of plenty of rest, laundry, movies, and more rest. This is especially helpful for campers who live a significant distance away from Camp Sweeney. Of course, parents may pick up their campers between sessions if they choose.
Weekend 1: June 28 – June 30, 2019
Weekend 2: July 19 – 21, 2019
“In the few short hours she has been home, I can tell her level of diabetes care knowledge has improved. “
“The positive outlook and the friendships have made such an impact on our son.”
Camp Sweeney offers financial assistance to all families who demonstrate financial need. Each year, we grant over 1 million dollars in financial aid to our campers. Our goal is to never turn away any family who demonstrates financial need.
To apply for financial assistance fill out the financial assistance section on the camper application. Be sure to send in proof of income documentation as listed in that section. Financial aid is available for children who have diabetes or who are at risk of developing diabetes. Financial assistance is not available for non-diabetic campers or additional sessions.
To request more information about financial aid, please contact our registrar, Kara Knight.
