Camp Aspire - Session 2
About Camp Aspire
Camp Aspire is an acronym for "Always Sharing Priceless, Inspirational, Rewarding Experiences."
Camp Aspire is held at the Rotary Sunshine Campus in Rush, New York, only 15 miles from Rochester, NY. The camp is located on 133 acres of land in a rural setting, including modern year-round cabins, an Olympic size swimming pool, nature trails, athletic fields, and a fishing pond. Some of the activities include, rock wall with zip line, arts and crafts, drama and music, photoshop and a splash pad! Come join the fun!
The main goal of the program at Camp Aspire is to allow the campers the ability to feel at ease and "accepted" in a community where having diabetes is the rule, not the exception. The campers learn to understand diabetes and the process of self-management, under skilled and continuous medical supervision. It is the hope of the staff, that these children go home feeling more self-confident, self-reliant and having gained the knowledge they need to live successful, full lives with diabetes. We want them to be able to say, "I went to camp and had fun!" Many of these children come to camp not knowing any other people with diabetes, especially other kids like themselves. There are friendships made which last a lifetime!
