Little Shoots Day Camp

Little Shots Day Camp is designed especially for younger children (age 6-9) who have diabetes. Intermingled with the educational sessions are fun-filled themed recreational activities, games and arts and crafts. All activities are designed to promote confidence and teach techniques for managing their diabetes.

Children value the opportunity to spend an entire week with 35 other children and positive teen role models who also have diabetes. For a short time, your child won�t feel like the �only one� who has diabetes! Kids leave camp with a can-do attitude and new friends they will treasure for life.

Nearly 90% of parents report that their child needs fewer reminders to perform self-care tasks after spending a week at camp.

Campers, parents and extended family come together to celebrate each camper�s achievements at the family picnic and awards ceremony on Thursday evening before the final day of camp.

The campers spend their days in camp with physicians, nurses, junior counselors, dietitians, and a recreational specialist developing the self-confidence and understanding necessary to help deal with the campers� diabetes.
