Day Camp is the place for fun and adventure, it provides vital educational experiences for children to learn more about their diabetes. The Day Camp site has playing fields, play ground equipment and indoor activities such as arts and crafts, group games and education. Staffing includes nurses, dietitians and caring counselors who are devoted to providing a safe environment.
Day campers enter camp daily with a sense of anticipation, and return home in the afternoon full of self-confidence and fun. The program is designed to provide continuous development for the camper who has been to camp before or for the newly diagnosed. Most importantly, Day Camp is one of the few places where children have the opportunity for group interaction with other children their own age, who also have diabetes. Day Camp runs from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm.
