Who We Are
Delivering vital health education and disease management messages creatively to children in a stress-free group environment is a proven method for achieving improved health and wellness. A team of medical specialists, including endocrinologists, registered dieticians, emergency medical technicians and nurses deliver programs that result in campers attaining new levels of ability and independence with skills such as administering insulin, blood glucose monitoring and effective diet regulation. The unique demands placed on the youngest campers, as well as the older teens, are addressed with age appropriate tools.
Making a Difference
Healthy and lasting lifestyle habits for children are created through
Children will develop a working understanding of the links between nutrition, carbohydrate counting, insulin dosages, insulin delivery mechanisms, and the effects of physical activity and stress on the disease.
Youth have the opportunity to experience fun and unique recreational activities such as horseback riding, rock wall climbing, kayaking and team sports that they may not otherwise be exposed to.
Children in this camp community are encouraged to accept their disease and move away from the denial that strikes so many. Only when acceptance occurs, can a child move on in life.
