Parents do you feel like there is more to those teen talks than just the birds and the bees! Do you want your teenager to understand how teen topics such as college, sex, drugs, and alcohol are affected by having diabetes? Teenage campers come to learn more about themselves and their diabetes, all while having a winter blast of fun! Under the guidance of our health care team, campers will take a more involved role in their self-diabetes care, including charting blood sugars and calculating insulin doses. A past participant said, “It’s a stress-free, judgment-free zone to meet new people and learn about yourself.”

Ever tried to drop an egg from a two-story building without it breaking or tried to build the tallest structure using only dry spaghetti and marshmallows? Or how about building a bridge that can hold the most weight? Who's ready for a weekend full of fun, education, and most importantly hanging out with others living with type 1 diabetes? With the addition of a science, technology, engineering, arts and math theme, we will be doing many NEW activities as well as your camp favorites. We also typically have a lot of fun outside building snowmen and sledding at this program. You may bring one friend or sibling without diabetes to this fun weekend.
