Many activities in the Lions District 4-C1 support the Diabetic Camp at Lake McCumber. The Lions All-Star Football and Softball games and golf tournaments have donated thousands of dollars to help build new cabins. Lions Clubs all over the District hold Golf Tournaments and fundraisers to help support the kids that attend the Camp at Lake McCumber.
The camp is designed to teach kids how to manage their diabetes effectively making healthy and safe choices.
The camp is sponsored by the Lions’ Health Foundation (a 501-C3 foundation) of District 4-C1, a nonprofit
service organization The foundation is dedicated to providing fun and educational camping experiences for
youth with health challenges, who would otherwise be denied the privilege.
Camp is the last two weeks in June. Campers receive an assigned time to “Check-In” on Sunday in the “Welcome to Camp” letter, which is sent shortly before camp begins. “Check-Out” occurs the following Saturday after our 10 a.m. closing ceremony and before 12 noon. The Camp accepts children who have diabetes, ages 8 through 17.
