STIX Diabetes Programs

    Offices Located at PO Box 8308, Spokane, WA 99203-0308


    We are a unique non-profit organization which offers an unparalleled camp experience for children living with Type 1 Diabetes (T1D). Our camps comprise of a week-long camp for children - ages 9-18, a 3-day non-residential day camp for kiddos ages 6-8, and our newest addition Adventure Camp for teens age 16-19! All camps are 100% volunteer operated with a nearly 1:1 ratio of campers to volunteers; including medical staff, social workers, cooks/kitchen and program staff. We take pride in our ability to offer a traditional camp experience, while offering diabetes education and 24-7 medical care. Perhaps most importantly, STIX camps foster the ability for these youth to build relationships and community, realizing they are not alone in living with T1D.
