About Camp Sandcastle
Camp Sandcastle, a program of the American Diabetes Association, was established over 20 years ago to broaden the opportunity of Coastal Bend children with diabetes to experience summer camp.
Camp Sandcastle is an exciting week long day camp for children with type 1 Diabetes. Children attending camp will experience outdoor fun while learning valuable lessons on positive diabetes management. Camp Sandcastle promotes self-confidence, independence, peer support and fun.
Physicians and nurses from around the Coastal Bend are the staff support for Camp Sandcastle. They are joined by community volunteers who also donate their time to ensure these children have a great camp experience and help them learn skills and habits for a lifetime of good health.
The American Diabetes Association is committed to providing educational information and referral services for children with diabetes and their families, advocating for fair and quality treatment of children with diabetes in schools, and increasing federal funding for diabetes research.
