American Diabetes Association's Camp Sugar Falls is held at Pleasant Green Swim Club in Goodlettsville, TN just north of Nashville. Campers participate in nutritional activities, athletics, arts and crafts, swimming, games and diabetes education. The property includes large mowed picnic and play areas, a pool staffed by the facility and buildings for all-purpose use. Camp Sugar Falls uses a designated picnic area and building as its main base of operation. We also have a storage area for our supplies and equipment, plus a kitchen for the set-up of our snacks and use of a lodge area in case of rain.

ADA provides all of the volunteer program and activity supervision, as well as the volunteer medical staff. Care of diabetes in the camp setting is achieved by a volunteer team of health professionals working together in an interdisciplinary manner with the volunteer camp program staff. The care is sensitive to the needs and concerns of the children, and integrates diabetes education at the same time. Camp Sugar Falls provides children with the opportunity to participate in recreational activities while developing independence and confidence in caring for their diabetes. One day of the week, a session for parents and children ages 5 and under is offered. Siblings are welcome.
