Idaho Diabetes Youth Programs Inc. is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization that sponsors camps and programs for all children and teens with type 1 diabetes. These programs foster self-reliance and demonstrate that people need not be limited by diabetes. Teaching by example, our staff provides mentoring and support to these kids, teens and families regardless of ability to pay in a safe, healthy, and respectful environment.
We are especially proud of our significant volunteer support. Nearly all of IDYP’s camp, event, and business staff are volunteers. They either have diabetes themselves and grew up in our programs or are medical professionals with expertise in type 1 diabetes. Our volunteers give more than 10,000 hours of their time to make camp happen each year.Many of the staff have been with Camp Hodia for well over 20 years.
