If Cubby could use all the emojis he wanted to express how much fun he had this past weekend, the text message would be way too long! The Diabetes Fall Family Retreat was a great, and successful, end to the Fall season! Thank you to all of the families that came out, played hard, made crafts, and networked with others from across the country! CCK is forever grateful, for if it wasn't for you, we could not make weekends like these happen! #Diabetes #Thanksgiving #Gratitude #CCK.KY #CourageousKids #Fall ... See MoreSee Less

The Countdown is on to #GivingTuesday! Meet Sophie - a CCK camper! Her parents recently shared what CCK means to their family:

"CCK is unlike any other place our daughter Sophia has ever experienced. The sense of inclusiveness is reflective of a close knit community. Every year she attends is like going home for a visit. It is an amazing environment brought about by a caring and dedicated combination of full time staff and volunteers that give of themselves selflessly to help make her disability disappear. While at camp she enjoys horseback riding, paddle boating, swimming, and interactive activities that allow her to be just like every other kid who is away at camp. For the time she’s at CCK she is accepted and celebrated and allowed to be herself in an caring and compassionate environment. Thank you CCK for being you and for making our kids the focus of your loving and empowering efforts."

Help us continue to provide community to our courageous kids. RSVP to giving this #GivingTuesday: www.facebook.com/events/262495711076277
