Camp for Kids with Diabetes
About Camp for Kids with Diabetes
The main goal of the program at American Diabetes Association Camp for Kids 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 selfconfident, 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 quite frankly, last a lifetime!
