As camp professionals, we understand that youth learn well through play. It is part of why diabetes education at camp works. The Diabetes Activities Toolkit or “Dkit” is a collection of diabetes education activities from the nation’s best diabetes camp educators.
DKit organizes the best games and activities in an online resource using the American Association of Diabetes Educators 7 Self-Care Behaviors as the underpinning. These age-appropriate educational activities will make it easy for you to choose a category and age group and be on your way to education and fun.
Our friends in the diabetes community and partner organizations have developed many resources that help youth, young adults and families balance diabetes every day. If you do not find what you are looking for here, check out the website links for more information.
