Montanans are increasingly feeling the effects of diabetes as thousands of people suffer from the disease, and many others may have diabetes and not know it! It is estimated that one out of every three children born after 2000 in the United States will be directly affected by diabetes.
That is why the American Diabetes Association's Montana office is so committed to educating the public about how to stop diabetes and support those living with the disease.
We are here to help.

The American Diabetes Association Montana Camp is held at Beartooth Mountain Christian Ranch property outside of Fishtail. While the primary objective of camp is to provide a safe, fun, traditional experience, attention to the medical needs of each camper is always a priority. Each camper has the opportunity to learn and practice valuable diabetes self-management techniques under medical supervision.
Crazy Mountain Crossing Trail, Montana
This is a great time to share stories, get ready for college and learn to balance activity, insulin and food while recreating! This trip is the result of a request by kids “graduating from diabetes camp” and wanting a continuation of the backpacking experiences with others with type 1 diabetes.
We welcome your help.
