About the Camp
The American Diabetes Association Camp Freedom is a resident camp program for boys and girls ages 7 to 16. This year will be the 15th year of our camp. In 2014, 75% of our campers were past campers! 88% of our counselors were return counselors or past campers. Camp Freedom is held at Camp Kweebec, which has been accredited by the American Camp Association for more than 40 years and located in Montgomery County, PA. Camp Freedom offers a wide range of activities, including swimming, sports, horseback riding, zip lining, arts and crafts, cooking, campfire activities and more!
The purpose of our camp is to provide a safe environment for children with diabetes to participate in traditional camping fun while meeting other kids like them and learn new ways to manage their diabetes. Our staff includes physicians, nurses, registered dietitians and counselors. For additional information, please read the camp brochure.

Counselor-in-Training (CIT): A CIT must be 17 years of age and submit an application. The application requires two personal references and a medical reference. Space is limited for this position.
The role of a CIT is to assist counselors while working with younger campers. The CIT Program provides training for youth interested in working with kids, specifically as camp counselors. Participants are expected to interact thoughtfully and compassionately with younger campers; to commit to learning more about themselves, camp, and camp procedures; to be team members and to take on responsibility and leadership. CITs also have the opportunity to learn a basic understanding of diabetes and its care.
The primary goal of the CIT Program is to offer a fun and supportive experience that will develop confidence, commitment, and community. The program focuses on helping youth become future leaders by developing communication, teamwork, and leadership skills. CITs will leave ready to become camp counselors. Contact Nate Keeney at email@example.com for the application.
