Is there a camp in casper wyoming

I was wondering if there’s a camp in casper wyoming and we don’t have a jdrf group or any outreach program in casper wyoming to help people who have type one or type two so I don’t have anyone to talk to I feel soo alone

A quick internet search came up with Camp Hope.  Not sure if it's still operational, but here's the info:

Camp HOPE, Wyoming's summer camp for children with diabetes is providing a camp session for children between the ages of 7-18 years, to be held the last full week of June, at Camp WYOBA on Casper Mountain. The session begins on Sunday, and ends on the following Saturday.

The camp is designed to provide opportunities for children with diabetes to become more knowledgeable in the care of their diabetes while enjoying a wholesome atmosphere of fun and association with others.

The camp will be staffed by experienced counselors, physicians, nurses, pharmacists, and dietitians. Proper individual diabetic management will be maintained through a regular program of blood glucose testing, and a professional review of medical records on a daily basis.

Registration and medical forms may be obtained by writing to the camp, or by calling (307) 265-5865 in Casper. Early inquiry is encouraged so that the camp staff will be able to plan adequately for the proper care of each camper. Registration and medical forms should be returned to the camp as soon as possible. Comprehensive information about the camp will be sent upon acceptance of registration materials.

The camp registration fee is $250, which includes an initial fee of $10 which is paid when camp forms are sent in. The balance of $240 may be paid upon arrival and check-in at camp the first day. Camp Hope exists solely upon camper fees and private donations. However, no child will be denied the opportunity to benefit from camp due to inability to pay. Camperships are available, and if needed, should be requested on the registration forms when returned.

Please write or call if further information regarding camp is needed, or to request registration forms. We hope to see you this summer!
