DANVILLE — For 52 years, Camp Mohaven has been a beloved aspect of summertime in Danville. Approximately 750 individuals stay at the campgrounds throughout nine weeks of summer camp. For two weeks out of the summer, Camp Mohaven welcomes the Central Ohio Diabetes Association to set up a unique camp that benefits children living with diabetes: Camp Hamwi.

“(Camp Mohaven) is a ministry of the Ohio Conference of Seventh Day Adventists,” Dave Robinson, Camp Manager at Camp Mohaven said. “Not only do we have Central Ohio Diabetes Association (use our campgrounds for Camp Hamwi), we have Latter Day Saints girls camps and our own youth camp, which runs for five to six weeks in the beginning of the summer. We run 24-hours a day from June 1 to Aug. 6.”

Camp Hamwi, a 49-year old program, has been enjoying Camp Mohaven’s grounds since 1984.
