    Kids love summer camp. Kids with diabetes are no exception. Diabetes camps build safe environments around youth so they can learn to independently manage their diabetes amongst peers and dedicated professionals in an atmosphere of excitement and adventure. At GHS Children’s Hospital, Camp Buddy is an annual 3-day diabetes day camp for children 6-12 years old diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes (T1D). Fostering independence, support and friendships, this medically-supervised camp incorporates lots of fun activities including swimming, rock climbing, arts and crafts, basketball and team building games. Our on-site medical team includes doctors, nurses and dietitians, who attend to the health of our campers and provide blood sugar checks, diabetes management and education throughout the day.
