TCDC provides young people with diabetes a vast array of benefits. The medical staff conducts educational sessions geared to enhance campers' knowledge of their diabetes. Doctors, nurses, and dietitians work individually with campers to educate them on the importance of blood glucose control. This includes discussions on meal planning, insulin dosage requirements, exercise, and blood glucose testing. Lessons learned during the two week session can be used throughout the entire year.
