Carilion's Camp Too Sweet
June 16-20, 2008
Carilion Clinic and Camp Roanoke provide a summer camp for children and young adults (ages 7 – 16) who have type 1 and type 2 diabetes, age 7 - 16 years. The camp focuses on having fun and helping campers accept their diabetes as a part of their daily living. Through the camp, participants learn to interact with others, improve coping skills and challenge themselves. Camp Too Sweet is designed to meet the social, recreational and educational needs of young people with diabetes.
The staff consists of both licensed healthcare professionals and graduates of accredited outdoor recreation programs.
Camp Roanoke is nestled within 700 acres of the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains in western Roanoke County, conveniently located just off Interstate 81 exit 132. Camp Roanoke is proud to be accredited by the American Camping Association, a nationally recognized organization that focuses on the quality, health and safety of camp programs.
Camp Too Sweet is excited to offer a fun-filled residential experience that will run from June 16 - 20. Activities include canoeing, arts and crafts, outdoor sports, archery, hiking and much more!
Residential campers live in supervised cabins with other participants. Tuition includes all meals, snacks, lodging and activities for the week.
We also offer day camp for participating children. Tuition includes all lunches, snacks and activities for the week.
