American Diabetes Association Camps for Kids

The American Diabetes Association camps provide a special experience for children living with type 1 diabetes.

At Camp, meet and learn from other kids and adult counselors with diabetes who:

  • Listen and understand first-hand what it’s like to live with diabetes.
  • Share their strategies for coping with diabetes management and learn about their day-to-day triumphs and challenges.
  • Inspire campers with their personal accomplishments at school, in sports and at work.
  • Help campers make new friends and develop their own lifelong support system.

Your local ADA offers two different camping experiences.
