Synagogue campus will not displace diabetes camp

November 04, 1998|By SUN STAFF

Pikesville's Beth Tfiloh Congregation, which is opening its satellite campus at Camp Glyndon this week, will not be displacing the summer camp that has been conducted there by the American Diabetes Association.

Although Camp Glyndon was purchased by four members of the synagogue, the summer camp for diabetic children that was conducted at the site will continue to operate, said Cinda Showalter, executive director of the American Diabetes Association Maryland affiliate.

Although the diabetes association wanted the summer camp to continue, the cost of maintaining the property was too expensive, Showalter said. From the proceeds of the sale, the Maryland affiliate was able to make a $1 million donation to the American Diabetes Association's research foundation. The money will be used for diabetes research in Maryland.

The ADA Maryland affiliate's offices have moved to 3120 Timanus Lane in western Baltimore County. The new telephone number is 410-265-0075.
