District N2 Best Club Contest

CAMP LION MAXWELL

Camp Lion Maxwell, for children with diabetes ages 7 – 12 years, is located in Lunenburgh County, Nova Scotia at Camp Kadimah on William Lake in Brass Corner and sponsored by the Lions Clubs of Nova Scotia. . Hundreds of children with diabetes have benefitted from an experience made possible through the generosity of the Lions Clubs of Nova Scotia. Camp Lion Maxwell, named in the honor of the late Lion Peter Maxwell from the Truro Lions Club, exists to provide an extraordinary camping experience for children with diabetes. This fun-filled, educational program has become well known for instilling new hope and independence in these children. It is our belief that the experiences the children at camp enable them to live longer and healthier lives. At Camp Lion Maxwell, youth establish confidence and a sense of security that help them manage their disease and develop a positive outlook on life, reducing the amount of serious complications later in life, such as adult blindness. Lions clubs have been the generous primary supporters of Camp Lion Maxwell for many years and as well additional funds are raised for camp through Canadian Diabetes Association branches in Nova Scotia.
