The Rainbow Club

Dear Rainbow Clubbers,
2005 marks the 9th season for this fabulous, unique program for campers, siblings AND their parents. Advanced juggling, puppetry, tumbling and stiltwalking are on the schedule for this year! An adult program designed BY parents FOR parents is offered alongside the children's program with lectures and break-out group topics ranging from pump therapy and current research to parent sessions for both newly diagnosed and more "seasoned" parents. Register soon to be part of the "Circus Week Theme" of fun, learning, new friendships and non-stop giggles!

New this summer, a full day option for clubbers.

*NOTE: To receive a Rainbow Club application in the mail, please call (508) 987-2056. All past Rainbow Clubbers will automatically receive an application in the mail.

All of The Barton Center for Diabetes day camps, regardless of their location, provide a great mix of diabetes education and summer camp fun and games under the supervision of diabetes professionals. It is often through a successful day camp experience that campers "graduate" to Barton resident camp programs in future summer seasons! Please visit us at to see the fabulous summer we have planned!

  Rainbow Juniors / Ages 3 to 6
The "juniors" have a designated staff of counselors and a nurse to oversee this fabulous group of kids. They have their own age-appropriate schedule and activities designed just for them including Gymboree! The American Red Cross will also be returning to award the popular Scrubby Bear Certificates.

Rainbow Sunshiners / Ages 7 to 10
These Rainbow Kids will be led by a buddy (matched by common interests), a counselor, and a team of nurses.

Rainbow C.I.T.'s / Ages 11 - 16
The Counselors-in-Training role is an opportunity for the older kids to be buddies and mentors while experiencing the fun of the program. A limited number of accepted CITs have the opportunity to be sponsored by The Rainbow Club for certification in the American Red Cross CPR training program.

Rainbow Counselors
Our volunteer Counselors share a wealth of individual experience. They are professional teachers, medical students, certified in CPR, fitness, or diabetes nursing. All of our staff are experienced in the care of children with diabetes, some of whom have it themselves. This year we will launch a volunteer program with nursing students from Fairfield University who will be nurse assistants and counselors.

"Let's Talk" for Adults
This adult program will take place from Monday through Friday at the Round Hill Community Church. This is a great opportunity for concerned loved ones to share ideas, solutions, and emotions while benefiting from education on information and research leading to the hope for a cure.
