Stay underneath the pines at beautiful Lake McCumber!!

The Lions of District 4-C1 created a camp for kids with Diabetes in 1988 at Camp McCumber and is an endorsed camp of California MD4 Lions. The objective of the camp was to help kids adjust to their situation and learn how to take care of themselves responsibly while living a normal life style.


Camp is held at beautiful Lake McCumber, just seven miles east of Shingletown and twelve miles west of Lassen Volcanic National Park, off Hwy 44.  With a beautiful wooded area, lake and recreation facility, this site offers the activities of outdoor camping while supplying the comforts of home – electricity, hot showers, cozy cabins and cafeteria style meals.  The camp’s elevation is 4,200 feet.

The Lions Health Foundation has the following goals for summer camp:

  • A safe, healthy and enjoyable camp experience.

  • Enable youth to meet and share their experiences with other youth who have diabetes.

  • Empower campers to become responsible for individual control of their health program.


Campers receive an assigned time to “Check-In” in the

“Welcome to Camp” letter which is sent shortly before

camp begins.  “Check-Out” occurs on the last day after

our 10:00am closing ceremony and before 12:00pm.

Lions Health Foundation is PROUD to sponsor the Annual District 4-C1 Diabetes Camp
