Mark Walsh's Diabetes Camp Midicha Volunteer Experience

Camp Midicha is the largest ADA camp serving over 500 campers during the last two weeks of June. Volunteering for Midicha is a one week commitment that starts on a Saturday and ends the following Friday. The rewards of being able to touch the lives of these children living with T1D is priceless.
