Camp Hodia is Idaho's only camp for children with diabetes. Located near beautiful Alturas Lake in the Sawtooth Mountains north of Sun Valley, Idaho, Camp Hodia offers an exciting experience for kids going into grades 5-8.

First of all, Camp Hodia is fun. But it also offers kids the opportunity to share common experiences, to meet others with diabetes, and to form meaningful friendships. For many campers this is their first time away from home. Camp Hodia strives to foster self-esteem and self-reliance in a safe, healthy environment. Campers learn self care, good nutrition and blood-sugar control. They are shown how to balance meals with activity and exercise. Many campers learn to give their first insulin shot - a big step toward independence. We know the realities of diabetes are not easy, but our goal is to help the lives of the campers to be happy, healthy and productive.

Camp Hodia is located at the Luther Heights Bible Camp in the Sawtooth National Recreation Area near beautiful Alturas Lake. The secluded camp is north of Sun Valley, nestled at the foot of the spectacular Sawtooth Mountains of Central Idaho. The camp includes log cabins, a huge fire pit, a commons lodge/cafeteria and a famous "Clivus" toilet facility that only a camper can tell you about. All this is a peaceful mountain atmosphere that clears the mind and soothes the soul.
