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.
