TCDC 2018

Opportunity for new campers to enjoy TCDC for one-week.

For new campers to TCDC we have created a one-week program that will take place the first week of the standard two-week camp session.

The cost is $400 and the dates are Sunday June 17 to Saturday, June 23, 2018.

One-Week Opportunity for Returning Campers 

Just as different schedules can factor into tougher diabetes management, we understand that scheduling conflicts can be challenging in returning to TCDC. As many of our campers participate in summer athletics or summer school activities, sometimes it is difficult to attend a full two-week camp session.

Being committed to the needs of our campers and their families, TCDC is excited to announce the opportunity for returning campers to attend a one-week session.

Based on availability, returning campers are given the opportunity to attend either of the camp’s week long sessions for a cost of $400.

Session One-Sunday June 17-Saturday June 23, 2018.

Session Two-Sunday June 24-Saturday June 30, 2018.

Help Send a Kid to Camp – Many of our campers are eligible to receive assistance for camp fees. TCDC never turns away a camper based on ability to pay.

If you are interested in sponsoring a camper or making any contributions to TCDC contact Pat Shires ( or click the Donate tab. Please remember that your company may make matching contributions to organizations that have 501(c)3 status.

TCDC can always use your assistance in obtaining supplies and equipment for camp activities. If you would like to help or know of any businesses wishing to help please contact Pat Shires at for a list of needs.
