ADA Diabetes Camps 2014

Get your swimsuit  and hiking shoes ready: It’s enrollment time for American Diabetes Association Diabetes Camps! Starting Feb. 1, 2014, applications  will be available for campers at diabetes.org/camp.

Diabetes camp is more than your average summer camp. It’s an opportunity for kids with diabetes to make friends with other children like them. More than 5,300 campers will enjoy the camp experience of a lifetime this year, while surrounded by trained medical staff and volunteers. Campers enjoy classic camp activities—from crafting to kayaking, rock climbing to sing-alongs— and also learn more about diabetes management.

Camp spaces fill up fast,  so find the camp nearest  you and apply online soon. Applications for paid staff positions will be available beginning March 1, 2014, at careers.diabetes.org. Volunteers should contact the camp’s coordinator found  at diabetes.org/camp.
