    Brainy Camps Association

    Offices Located at 111 Michigan Ave, NW, Washington, DC 20010

    Camp offers young people with diabetes summer fun, education, and social connections. Camp Take Charge was developed by Brainy Camps in conjunction with the Comprehensive Diabetes Program of Children’s National Health System. In addition to fun, the goal of Camp Take Charge is to reduce the social isolation that is often associated with this condition and increase knowledge and understanding of diabetes. The camp provides opportunities for youngsters to work with professional staff and become better self-advocates and self-managers of their condition. Parents can feel comfortable that their children are under the care of trained and experienced doctors, nurses, diabetes educators, pump specialists and other healthcare professionals who are experts in the field.
