A very special Residential camping program accredited by ACA. They offer Family Weekends, Family Education Days and Bring-A-Friend Weekends in different locations and times throughout the Fall, Winter and Spring. These sessions allow families and friends a time together to learn about issues related to diabetes. This provides crucial diabetes education, nutrition education, psycho-social support, and a chance for kids and parents to get to know their doctor outside of the hospital setting; allows kids with diabetes and their siblings to meet other kids just like them and provides an opportunity for parents to meet other parents. These events help prepare kids for the summer camp experience, and teach the whole family that together, they can handle diabetes.
