A sustainability initiative of Camp Ho Mita Koda
Camp Ho Mita Koda offers a unique environment for campers, alumni, families, and the community to gather and have unifying experiences that build strong relationships and memories to last a lifetime. For our many families who refer to Camp Ho Mita Koda as their “home away from home”, we are now offering an opportunity to leave a lasting impact and give back to camp through our cabin adoption program.
We know how important it is for our facilities to be well maintained and to allow people to fully engage with their purpose. After 91 years of changing lives, we are committed to providing world-class programs and facilities for our participants and it is time for an update. The donations to camp allow us to keep facilities up-to-date with the every changing building standards of CHMK. It also ensure that other families can come together and experience this unique and beautiful place. The contribution of cabins helps change lives as together we honor our Mission of helping individuals living with Type 1 Diabetes grow in mind, body, and spirit through an outdoor camping experience that strengthens their confidence and creates a community of peers.
We believe that the adoption of a cabin at Camp Ho Mita Koda is one of the greatest gifts you can give to your family and to others!
Here’s how you can help:
- Adopt a cabin as an individual, with your family, church group, organization, or any combination of ways!
- This commitment involves a yearly or one-time donation of funds that will support your adopted cabin to ensure that it remains up-to-date and source of pride.
- Adopting groups are highly encouraged to come out to camp annually and assist with beautification projects.
Camp Ho Mita Koda has served over 25,000 campers and staff, with countless rentals and guests all utilizing our cabins each and every year. If you love coming to camp, you are not alone! Together, we can maintain and improve our facilities for you, your children, and our community.
What needs to be done?
Our current cabins have been a defining fixture of Camp Ho Mita Koda for well over 20 years. After years of service, a variety of improvements and upgrades are desperately needed to ensure that they survive for many more years in the future. Here is a list of projects that need to be completed:
- Replace front and rear cabin door
- Replace front and rear screen door
- Purchase new, thicker mattresses and frames
- Add insulation and heat
- Replace fans
- Paint the exterior
- Replace the roof
- Paint the interior
- Replace shutters
- And much more!
How will I or my group benefit?
Your cabin will be adorned with a plaque of appreciation with your name/group name. We also honor all adopters on the camp website. Additionally, everyone who is involved with a cabin sponsorship is entitled to one night annually at Camp Ho Mita Koda to utilize their adopted cabin.
Additionally, you or your group will have a service project to take pride and ownership in. The act of doing service together is a powerful way to share connection. Valuable work is being done while your group is building bonds of community. If you feel like Camp Ho Mita Koda has provided you with positive experiences, this is your chance to give back.
