About the Camp

Both components challenge each camper to reach their maximum potential, both mentally an physically. The campers are actively involved in managing their diabetes. Goals for campers include improved self-esteem, taking responsibility for diabetes management and social adjustment in a new setting away from home.
The activities are planned for the interest and skill level of each age group and proivide new and different experiences for campers each year. 24 hour medical supervision is provided by physicians, nurses and other health care providers. Nutrition activities, blood glucose monitoring and insulin administration are integrated into the camp program.
