“The talks and time spent with other families really reinforced in us that ‘we are not alone’ in our fight against diabetes.”

At Barton we recognize that diabetes affects the whole family … Mom, Dad, Brothers, Sisters, Grandparents, and even Uncle Pat! Barton family programs provide an opportune time for strengthening the home “diabetes team,” talking one-on-one with our on-site professionals and building new and lasting friendships with other families also impacted by diabetes. Whether you are boating on the pond, playing Dr. Dodge Ball, participating in a diabetes education session or singing in the dining hall … we hope you will say “WOW – Heaven on earth – Clara Barton Camp is going to be a second home to our family.” (Parent)

Calling all families and caregivers! We know diabetes impacts the entire family. Attend as an entire family or send your child with aunts, uncles, grandparents, neighbors, or others who are helping to care for your child in your home or theirs. This weekend will include education geared towards the beginner but also sessions for those more experienced in diabetes management. Hear from other families, staff who have diabetes, and trained professionals who will answer your questions. Optional games and fun for all ages from sports to cookie bake-offs.
