Camp Sugar Falls

American Diabetes Association Camp

About the Camp

Each summer, the American Diabetes Association's Camp Sugar Falls provides children with diabetes in the mid-Tennessee area a special place to play, laugh, share and learn about diabetes management. Camp Sugar Falls is a day-camp experience for children ages 6 to 12 that have been diagnosed with type 1 or type 2 diabetes. The camp offers an exciting week of recreational and educational activities that focus on nutrition, lifestyle habits, self-esteem and team building.

Camp Sugar Falls takes place at the YMCA's Camp Widjiwagan in Antioch, TN, which is located on 320 acres of land with 4 miles of shore line on J. Percy Priest Lake. Parents can be confident in knowing that our elite medical team will be overseeing your child's medical needs.
