Basketball Camps

Our vision is that all kids with diabetes live full, active, productive and satisfying lives. We are the only free, not-for-profit, instructional day camp for kids ages five to 18 diagnosed with diabetes. We provide a safe, structured and supportive environment for each camper with experienced coaches teaching alongside diabetes educators.

Diabetes is a costly disease and a financial burden for many families. Slam Dunk for Diabetes® Basketball Camp is free and targets low-income children who could not otherwise afford to attend. No child is turned away.

Welcome to camp, Slam Dunk Kids, friends and family!

Watch Monica and the Slam Dunk Kids in action! See “Showcasing Our Heroes” by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics.

Congratulations to Monica Joyce recognized by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics as a nutrition hero for her work in changing the lives of so many children.
