A long-time dream of Dr. Kenneth Copeland, Camp Blue Hawk was established in 2015 out of the Harold Hamm Diabetes Center. In its first year, Camp Blue Hawk had 20 campers, and operated under the Cavett Kids Camp for children with chronic illnesses. In 2016, Camp Blue Hawk programmed its own camp for the first time with 48 camp attendees.
