Audience: Youth
Program Type: Overnight Camp

Bring a friend weekend is open for kids ages 5 through 11, who may not have spent a night away from home before. This weekend offers a camping experience in a shortened setting where campers are allowed to bring a friend of the same sex and appropriate age if they so choose. Children participate in activities such as swimming, land sports, and arts and crafts. Children with diabetes are taught age appropriate self-management skills and children without diabetes learn about the disease and what their friends go through on a daily basis. All talks are led by the pediatric endocrinologist, nurses, dieticians and mental health professionals.
