Our mission is to improve the quality of life for those affected by diabetes and related diseases through innovative basic and transitional research, progressive clinical care, education and community outreach. Our diabetes day camp is an important part of that mission reaching campers ages 8-17 with type 1 diabetes. At camp, we encourage independence under the guidance of camp nurses, dietitians, pharmacists and physicians to help campers gain confidence in their diabetes self-management skills. Learning at camp takes place in the context of real life situations while participating in fun activities and meeting new friends.
