Camp Hickory is a one week summer daycamp for children, aged 8 - 12 years old, with type 1 diabetes.
The camp is staffed with mature adults and professionals in the field of diabetes. All the staff are trained about working with children and diabetes health issues.
The Camp Director, Mrs. Jill Hayes, is a Certified Dietician/Certified Diabetes Educator. According to Mrs. Hayes, the daycamp is "not a clinic in the woods." Rather it will be a week filled with activities that are fun while being educational about diabetes.
