A week long day camp in July, for children ages 4 through 13, living with Type 1 Diabetes. Panther Day Camp is held at Camp McCullough located in Covington, WA. The camp experience allows children with Type 1 Diabetes to meet other children with diabetes and talk with adults who have grown up with diabetes. Diabetes education is an important part of Panther Day Camp, however, the emphasis is on having fun, building friendships and sharing common concerns.Â Presently there is no cure for diabetes, but with medical supervision, exercise, healthy eating and insulin, a full and active life-style is possible.
