This camp has two main components. First is a medical education program that focuses on teaching campers to care for their health needs. The second component is a recreation program that teaches a ‘Can Do’ attitude, encouraging diabetic campers that they can achieve their goals, any goal they set, by managing their diabetes.
The education program is accomplished by a medical team of physicians, nurses, and dietitians who join the camp staff during Diabetes Camp. The medical team helps children learn to control their diabetes by eating properly, monitoring their own blood sugar, and giving their own insulin injections. Campers are monitored throughout the camp session in this process.
In the recreation portion of the program, campers participate in many exciting summer activities; boating, archery, arts & crafts, horses, radio, climbing wall, swimming and more, while they learn about their condition. and confidence.
Each session is 1 week Sunday through Saturday
