Camp Sioux - Session 1

2016 Camp Sioux Banner

About the Camp

The purpose of Camp Sioux is to provide a fun and safe camping experience for children living with diabetes. We want to give kids the opportunity to meet other kids just like them as well as help them gain confidence and independence in managing their diabetes.

Camp Sioux is held at Park River Bible Camp in Park River, North Dakota. Facilities include: a 24 hour health center, dining hall, crafts barn, pool, nature trails, basketball and 4-square courts, soccer fields, archery range, high ropes course and a gaga pit. (If you don't know what a gaga pit is you'll just have to come to camp and find out!)
