The not-for-profit organization helps hundreds of children and teens every year through a summer, residential camping program; family camp weekends; day camps for children ages 5-8 and through teen adventure trips and weekends.

In the fall of 2005, DYFI purchased a camp in Noblesville, Indiana. The camp, “Camp until a Cure” is the only camp in Indiana owned, designed and operated specifically for the needs of children and teens with Type 1 diabetes.

Visitors at the show will also experience America’s Top Hot Rods, Customs, Trucks and bikes, Artist Alley, Drag City USA featuring cars from Lucas Oil Raceway, the Custom Motorcycle Show presented by Indianapolis Harley-Davidson, as well as a meet-and-greet with celebrities.
