For the time being, we have paused Camp Jordan. We continue to receive guidance from the state of Virginia regarding the safe operation of Summer Camps. We will relaunch Camp Jordan once the health data supports offering this type of program. We will update this page as more information is made available.
In the meantime, please sign up for Summer 2021 updates and be the first to know when Camp Jordan registration opens.
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.
