About Diabetes Camp
ADA Diabetes Camp is held at Camp Soles, a 263 acre YMCA resident camp in the Laurel Highland Mountains of southwestern Pennsylvania (about 65 miles south of Pittsburgh).
Camp Soles is accredited by the American Camp Association and has an 18 acre man-made lake, Lake Tris, ideal for swimming, canoeing, kayaking and sailing. The campgrounds also have:
- camper cabins
- staff lodging
- Shaw Lodge
- a rustic dining hall
- recreational hall
- climbing wall
- ball fields
- basketball and volleyball courts
- arts & crafts center
- nature hike paths
Management is provided by a highly competent staff of pediatric physicians, pediatric certified diabetes nurse educators, dietitians, and counselors. Medical staff and counselors strive to make the "home away from home" camp experience one which teaches techniques for managing nutrition, exercise and medications. On-site medical staff will evaluate each child’s medical status, dietary intake and daily activities. Dietitians have carefully planned meals and snacks to provide optimal nutritional quality and camper appeal.
The recreational activities, food service, and some camper supervision support for the American Diabetes Association's Diabetes Camp program are provided under contract by Camp Soles.
