Camp Seale Harris�the cornerstone of the SDES organization, was founded in the summer of 1947 and remains a key component to successful diabetes management for children throughout the state of Alabama and beyond.
Camp Seale Harris is a summer residential program located at Camp ASCCA (Alabama�s Special Camp for Children and Adults) that encourages and motivates youth to reach their full potential despite diabetes, and it teaches families how to serve as the primary educators and supporters for children/adolescents living with this illness.
With the assistance of a host of volunteer staff to include physicians, nurses, diabetes educators, dieticians, pharmacists, camp counselors, teachers, and friends, youth living with diabetes can engage in the typical camp activities that all children love and expect from camp�swimming, fishing, boating, hiking, and horseback riding.
Our kids, many of who find that attending regular camp programs can be extremely difficult, tend to blossom while at our camp. They are able to obtain greater independence over their lives and learn how to successfully manage their diabetes without giving up on the traits that make them extraordinary. They will often develop a �can-do� attitude about physical activity, teamwork, and their future as healthy, happy adults.
