A veteran of the United States Air Force, Daniel (“Dan”) Hohal now serves as a complex claims supervisor for an insurance company in Wilkes-Barre, PA. In addition to his professional activities, Daniel Hohal supports the American Diabetes Association (ADA), placing particular focus on its Camp Freedom event.

Available to children between the ages of 7 and 16, Camp Freedom is an annual event that takes place at Camp Kweebec in Pennsylvania. Accredited by the American Camp Association for over four decades, Camp Freedom offers participants the opportunity to get involved in numerous activities, such as horseback riding, cooking, zip lining, and swimming.

Camp Freedom’s purpose is to provide a safe place for children with diabetes to enjoy camping activities while meeting others with the condition. Its staff includes trained medical professionals and counselors who provide 24-hour medical supervision to campers.

The 2017 Camp Freedom takes place between June 17 and June 23 and costs $895 per camper. Financial aid is available for families unable to afford the fee.
