For many children with diabetes and their parents, canoeing and camping are the last things on their minds in the winter months. But now is a perfect time to start thinking about the summer—and signing up for an American Diabetes Association camp. Registration for most camps begins this month at diabetes.org/campregistration.
In addition to typical camp activities, kids can make friends and learn more about their diabetes at ADA Diabetes Camps. All camps are equipped with supplies, medical staff trained in diabetes management, and experienced volunteer staff. There are 42 ADA Diabetes Camps offering 54 sessions in 26 states. Most camps are overnight stays for kids under 18, though 17 of the sessions are day camps only that are geared for kids ages 4 to 14. For more information, visit diabetes.org/camps.
