About the Camp

Come to ADA Camp Sealth and learn new skills and improve diabetes self-management.

Campers visit medical staff before each meal and at bedtime. Meal choices are discussed with the dietitian, followed by blood sugar testing, and insulin dosing with physicians and nurses.

Together, the medical staff and camper decide the appropriate dose of insulin based on individual carbohydrate to insulin ratios and sliding scales. Blood sugar testing and insulin adjustments are made as appropriate to scheduled activities, and night time checks are performed when necessary. Every camper enters camp at a different stage of self-management, and the medical team is there to provide the highest quality care regardless of a child's individual skills and knowledge.

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.

Applications are accepted on a first come, first served basis. Limited space is available.

More Information About the Camp

Children Without Diabetes

If your child would like to attend camp with a friend or family member that does not have diabetes then those children will need to register directly with Camp Sealth and NOT through the American Diabetes Association. All applications for children without diabetes will be rejected.

Financial Aid

If your child is in need of financial aid to pay for camp's program fee then please fill out and return the financial assistance in the supplemental forms packet emailed to you after registering. In addition, you will need to inclue a copy of your most recent 1040 tax form (for verification purposes).

Volunteers

The American Diabetes Association relies on a team of exceptional volunteers to make sure our Campers can focus on enjoying summer camp, not worrying about their diabetes management. As a volunteer, you can gain experience helping children with type 1 diabetes manage the disease, learn about new diabetes technology and work with medical professionals from across Washington State. We are looking for doctors, nurses, nutritionists, pharmacists, health assistants, and non-medical volunteers.
