Located at Platte River State Park, Louisville, NE, this day camp is specifically for children with diabetes. The campus includes an air-conditioned environment for children to learn more about their diabetes while having fun. Activities include indoor swimming, crafts, photography, music, games and sports as well as diabetes education. This camp is independently operated and receives marketing and financial assistance from the American Diabetes Association. Camp is offered for children ages 6-12.

The main focus of the Hot Shots Foundation is to train and educate diabetic children and young adults. Each year for the last eight years, a dedicated group of volunteers consisting of Doctors, Nurses, Dieticians, and others, volunteer their time, talents and resources to help sponsor Camp Hot Shots. Camp Hot Shots is a three day camp dedicated to diabetic education and management. The Foundation's Staff mixes fun with education in a balanced learning environment.
