“I made a lot of friends and I found out if you take your insulin and watch your carbs more that my blood sugars are normal.”
“I had a great time at diabetes Camp. There were so many things to do and my numbers were great! I made a lot of friends and we stick together like peas in a pod!”
“The best thing about camp was that I realized that there are a lot of people just like me.”
"I had so much fun. I can't wait to go back next year!"
Read one parent’s testimonial about how diabetes Camp can be Good for the Whole Family.
“She had to listen to the “pros” telling her things we have been telling her. It took some of the “preaching” burden off us. Wow! Mom and dad actually know what they’re talking about!”
“I benefited from Camp because it made me realize that other people can care for him and he will remain safe and healthy.”
“I would recommend Camp to other parents who may be as hesitant as I was. I think the experience made her feel normal again and there is no price tag you can put on that for your child.”
“This Camp has allowed him to make life-long friends that he can turn to anytime. He remains in contact with other campers throughout the state.”
“She came home from Camp more confident with her ability to handle her diabetes. Being able to see others in her same dilemma, both younger and older gave her a sense of not being alone in the world.”
“I still hear him singing Camp songs in the shower.”
“Thanks in large part to the generous gift of your time and talents, my husband and I were able to take a week off from diabetes for the first time in over 8 years. Camp was a wonderful experience for our daughter — I think she felt a true sense of belonging. Although I’m sure it was a LONG week for you I hope you know how very much the parents appreciate you and the incredible staff that runs the Camp.”
