    Carilion Clinic Diabetes Management Program

    Office at 1030 S Jefferson St., Ste G101, Roanoke, VA 24016-4418


    Learning to live with diabetes can be challenging, especially for children. Kids don't like feeling different from their peers. We are pleased to offer the Camp Too Sweet program for children ages 8 to 17 who have type 1 or type 2 diabetes. This week-long summer program teaches young people with diabetes the self-management skills that they need to take care of themselves.

Campers interact with other kids just like themselves, who are facing the same challenges, in the beautiful and exciting setting of our residential camp. Campers stay in supervised cabins with other children. Tuition for residential camp is $435 and includes all meals, snacks, lodging and activities for the week.
