Camp Hamwi Virtual Camp will run from July 12th to July 25th, 2020 for ALL AGES including our day camp kids.
ONLINE REGISTRATION HAS CLOSED.
To inquire about any remaining availability, contact Anthony Myer at amyer@lifecarealliance.org.
Here’s what campers can expect during Virtual Camp:

VIRTUAL GATHERINGS

Each day, there will be three time slots in which we get together over Zoom and have “live,” in-person camp programming.
  • CABIN TIME — 12:30 p.m.
    Each day, campers will have structured time with their cabin to connect with their peers also living with diabetes.
  • GROUP ACTIVITY — 3 p.m.
    We will split into small groups for group activities.  This time will include such items as learning sessions and arts and crafts.
  • EVENING ACTIVITY — 7 p.m.
    A different activity every day!  We will open and close camp with a virtual campfire, but throughout camp we will use this time for big group games/events like a camp talent show and trivia nights!

DAILY CHALLENGES

Campers will receive a list of three to five challenges each day. These challenges include attending the live sessions and doing individual tasks! For each challenge completed, campers receive points, and at the end of camp those points will go towards a tiered, exclusive Camp Hamwi swag item exclusive to this year and camp!

NOTES ABOUT VIRTUAL CAMP

For our Camp Hamwi virtual programming we will primarily be using two platforms, Facebook and Zoom.  For all of our live, in-person sessions we will be using a secure Zoom conference room with breakout rooms. For prerecorded content and for campers to share their challenges as they complete them we will be using a private Facebook group.
