About the Camp

Camp Daypoint is a day camp adventure for children ages 5 to 9. The perfect introduction to camp, Camp Daypoint is non-stop fun in a comforting environment. Small groups, each with two leaders, give children the attention they need during swimming, crafts, hikes, games and other activities. Amid all the fun, campers gain independence, grow in confidence, discover new skills and learn respect for others and the outdoors. Camp Daypoint also eases the transition to Camp Needlepoint, the residential program. Children are at the camp from about 9:00 a.m to 3:30 p.m. Buses pick up and return campers to Minneapolis and St. Paul locations.

The American Diabetes Association is committed to providing educational information and referral services for children with diabetes and their families, advocating for fair and quality treatment of children with diabetes in schools, and increasing federal funding for diabetes research.

The Camp fee includes medical supervision, snacks, supervised program activities, most diabetes supplies and an American Diabetes Association Camp t-shirt.
