Summer 2020 was extremely tough and summer 2021 is shaping up to be just as challenging.

Facilitator: Mark Moyer, MBA, MHA, Camp Setabaid, Kat Shreve, Camp Kudzu and Kaylor Glassman, Diabetes Youth Families
Camp insurance has faced many challenges in recent years and is changing rapidly in late 2020 and early 2021. We also saw eight carriers reduce to seven as one large carrier completely pulled from the camp insurance industry. The remaining carriers are all significantly changing coverages and some are not picking up new clients. This campfire chat will provide tips for diabetes camps which: -define the roles and the importance of individuals and companies in the camp insurance industry -help your camp receive proposals for coverage -review types of insurance to consider to safeguard the camp’s assets and reputation This campfire chat will include a panel of camp professionals from various backgrounds (e.g. large camps operating on their own property to small camps operating on leased property) to share their experience when selecting insurance for their camp.
