    At D-Camps campers get a break from being different. Camp is one of the few places where everyone just “gets it,” where the world runs on “diabetes time” and nothing has to be explained. Campers will meet other children who share a personal understanding of the challenges that come from living with diabetes, and many of these relationships develop into lifelong friendships. When children leave camp, they will have gained a new level of independence in managing their diabetes and feel empowered to continue the healthy practices they learned at camp. So, why send your child to a camp where all the campers have type 1 diabetes? Because together, we will take charge of diabetes and never let it define us. We will explore, share, learn and laugh because we’re all in this together.
