Back to Home Camps for Children with Diabetes

Diabetes camp is one of the best experiences that a child with diabetes can have. Camp is a place to learn self-confidence, independence from mom and dad, to be with other kids with diabetes, and simply to have a great time. It's also an excellent opportunity for mom and dad to take a break from diabetes. Almost all camps provide financial assistance to kids who are unable to pay the full camp fees.

The date graphic indicates the most recent information available. Information for some camps is old -- we do our best to keep up to date.
