July 6 - 12, 2008
Every Indian Princess and Young Brave should experience the adventures of summer camp. Because diabetes presents special challenges, camp life is not always available. However, there is an alternative trail which leads to fun and excitement and it begins at...
Camp Kno-Koma provides an environment where independence, self-reliance and character can prosper and grow, where seedlings become strong oaks nurished by the education camp life provides.
Just past the cool fern-laden woodland glen; under the graceful tall pines; by the trickling brook, next to daisy fields and warm fragrant summer breezes; in the shadow of West Virginia's mountain splendor, lies 300 acres of fun, sun and blue skies called Camp Kno-Koma at Camp Virgil-Tate near Charleston, West Virginia.
From dawn's first light, and while the dew still glistens on the rhododendron, the campers will find themselves actively involved and delighted by the numerous activities which await. Activities include nature studies, swimming, crafts, fishing, hiking, volleyball, basketball, badminton, ping-pong, photography, campfires, games, talent shows, dancing, cooking and much, much more.
As the sun disappears into a blanket of stars, campers find themselves with new friends gathered around a story-telling campfire. This is camp life where every moment of each day becomes a special memory to cherish for years to come.
The Physicians, Nurse Educators, Dietitians and other medical support staff will let Mom and Dad rest easier and have peace of mind during their camper's seven day wilderness excursion.
These health professionals realize the need for close medical supervision, and the make it their number one priority, so the campers can make having fun their number one priority.
Camper Scholarship applications are available. Qualification is determined by financial need. Priority is given to West Virginia residents.
Camperships are limited, and are based on the order of completed registration forms received. A Camper cannot be younger than age 7 or older than age 15 as of July 6, 2008.
