Camp Facilities

Nestled in the beautiful countryside, just a short 25 miles east of Cleveland, Ohio, is Camp Ho Mita Koda - the oldest camp for children with diabetes. It began as a dream to provide these children a chance to feel just like other kids, have the experience of the outdoors, and see beyond the limits of their disease. From that first summer in 1929 when Dr. Henry John and his wife, Betty, took six young children to their summer cottage, the Camp has grown to its current 72 woodland acres with trails, open field areas for activities and campfires, and a 6-acre lake.  Now, the Camp includes the log Great Hall and stone fireplace with attached Camp office, kitchen, and Dispensary, camper and staff cabins, bathhouse, heated Olympic-sized pool with pool house, original outdoor kitchen, Pavilion, parking areas, buildings for activities like Arts & Crafts, drama, and pottery, garages and numerous sheds for storing equipment.

This idyllic setting with its quiet, rustic buildings comes alive every spring with volunteers readying Camp for the opening of the summer season and the arrival of more than 200 children.  

Camp Ho Mita Koda facilities are also available for rental.
