INDEPENDENCE DIABETES CAMP
1 Week, Coed, Ages 9-15
This week combines all the fun and adventure described in a traditional week of Overnight camp with the advantage of living with other campers who deal with T1D as the norm.
At an age-appropriate level, campers will gain a little more “independence” as they learn more about counting carbs, checking blood sugar and how to balance food, insulin and physical activity.
Through our partnership with St Vincent's Medical Center, Evansville, IN, there's plenty of qualified on site support all week long. The medical team includes a physician, nurses and nutritionists specifically qualified to deal with T1D and provide additional education and diligent care for these campers.
