Weekend Programs

"I have loads of fun at The Barton Center. It is so great to make friends with other kids that have diabetes too."

November WACkY Weekend

November 20-22, 2015
Coed, Ages 6-16
Cost: $260 per person 

This is an exciting weekend where you have the opportunity to be part of our “Activities Laboratory.” This is THE weekend where we test out new and exciting games and activities that will be used in future programs. “Skeletons in the Closet” comes to mind as a new game we introduced last November. We will, of course, have camp favorites such as gaga and capture the flag. You may bring a friend or sibling without diabetes to this program.

Winter Camp

December 27-30, 2015
Coed, Ages 13-17
Cost: $500 per person                      Limited Space Available

Teen participants are encouraged to explore their thoughts and feelings of managing type 1 diabetes.  Campers will play a more significant role in their day-to-day diabetes management. Under the supervision of our medical staff, teens will be responsible for their own dosing and charting of numbers. Teen-themed topics are discussed over this four day program. A participant from a past program wrote, “I like that Winter Camp is just for teens and activities are tailored toward us. . . . It is a stress free, judgment free zone to meet new people and learn about yourself.” Please click here for online registration or a pdf brochure/registration form.

February WACkY Weekend

February 12-14, 2016
Coed, Ages 6-16
Cost: $260 per person

 Spend a fun-filled weekend at camp, and bring a friend or sibling without diabetes if you like.  Just like November WACkY, be prepared to test out new games and activities. We typically have snow in February, so be prepared to sled on the famous CBC Luge and make snow forts. When a February WACkY participant from last year was asked what she loved most about camp, she replied, “All the new friends I get to meet.” This is truly a weekend to say hello to your longtime friends and make new camp friends.
