For the time being, we have paused Camp Jordan. We are working with the medical team that helps to run this special program to determine when it will be prudent to relaunch Camp Jordan. We will update this page as more information is made available.
A Camp for Youth in grades 6-12 with Diabetes
Camp Jordan is a sleepover camp experience for kids with diabetes who are entering grades 6- 12 in September 2019. Since it’s inception in 1966 by the West Central Richmond Optimist’s Club, we offer traditional camp activities and our small group model allows participants the opportunity to forge friendships with others who understand the challenges of having diabetes. The campers are supervised by caring counselors and there are experienced medical professionals on site 24/7.
