Scholarship are available to cover or help cover the entrance fee for any family who qualifies based on income.

We have lowered our fees in hope that families will help fundraise for camp by having lemonade stands, bakes sales, jump rope contests or penny wars-these are all great ways to raise money for a great cause.             



From beginners to more practiced individuals, Camp Hamwi offers a diverse program for any skill level. The camp environment promotes a sense of team spirit and good sportsmanship in individual and group activities, and competitive and non-competitive challenges. Campers are encouraged to try new skills, and explore their unique individual potentials. Activity options include horseback riding, archery, volleyball, soccer, canoeing, swimming, arts and crafts, drama, dance, outdoor living skills, nature crafts, and outdoor adventure. Incorporated into the daily schedule are diabetes education sessions to increase campers' understanding of diabetes. Each week, the program is specially designed to address the interests of a particular age group.
