There is an opportunity for West Tennessee children with Type 1 diabetes to attend Camp Hopewell in Oxford, Miss., June 21-27. Scholarships are being provided by the West Tennessee District Dietetic Association for two children between the ages of 9 and 16 who live in West Tennessee and not in Shelby County.
The deadline for applications for the scholarships is April 1. Children selected will receive $390 to cover camp tuition and $100 in supply/travel fees and those selected will be notified later in April.
For more information, go to the camp Web site at www.camphopewell.com.
Financial need, diabetes education need and motivation will be strongly considered during the selection process, according to a spokesman for the association, who said applicants may include a letter of recommendation for a child.
