MAPKUF Camp Huber Registration Information

What is Camp Huber?



Camp Huber is the PKU Summer Camp offered by the Maryland Alliance of PKU Families, Inc. The goal of the camp is to bring families with PKU together for a weekend of fun and learning, where PKU food is on the menu and no one has to explain what PKU is.

Camp Huber is not limited to Maryland Families. Any family able to make it to our camp is welcome to participate. 

Camp Huber can be enjoyed for the entire weekend, or just for the day on Saturday. The day-camp option works especially well for local families with very small children who can't stay overnight, but want to participate.
