    We are very excited to be officially moving forward with opening camp this summer. Our Governor gave approval for residential camps to open as of March 22nd, so we are moving forward with opening procedures as usual. We are currently waiting for additional state re-opening guidelines. Once we have these guidelines, we will finalize all COVID-19 protocols with our Medical Directors. While camp may be a bit different this year, we know campers can’t wait to return. The biggest change for the summer is the decision to operate both camps at the Clara Barton site in North Oxford. Cabins will not be coed. Capacity is reduced, we will be requiring a PCR test and we will provide rapid tests upon arrival and again on day 5. All of our sessions are currently full and have waitlists. We capped our registrations at a conservative number to allow for social distancing and further state guidance. Once we have state guidelines, we hope to begin registering those on our waitlist. All “b” session campers have been moved to an “a” session or a two-week session to avoid bringing in new campers midway through a session. Staff will be required to remain at camp which has resulted in fewer applicants. If your child would like to attend camp this summer, we recommend using our online registration process to waitlist your child for the desired session(s). There is no fee to put your child on the waitlist. Campers who are fully registered should receive their confirmation packets in the mail by the end of April. We have held off on printing these as we would like to include our COVID-19 protocols once they are finalized. Due to continued safety concerns, we mutually agreed to cancel our out-of-state programs this summer out of an abundance of caution. We look forward to resuming our day camps in CT and NY next summer along with our Vermont Overnight Camp and Adventure Program. If you have any questions, please email info@bartoncenter.org.

    What Does Fall Family Camp look like in 2021: Here are some highlights! Camp is open for ages 4-12, but older kids are welcome to attend and will serve as counselors in training (CITs). Do note that all children are required to have a parent or guardian stay on-site all day if they are under age 18. It is a day camp on Saturday (Registration begins at 9 am, and camp ends at ~8:30 pm after a sing-along at the campfire.) For families who have to travel longer distances, we offer overnight lodging in the cabins on both Friday night and Saturday night for a small fee. Lunch and dinner are provided with each registration, and carb counts are given for the meal. Those who stay over on Saturday night, will also receive breakfast on Sunday morning before they depart. Free for children with diabetes, but the whole family is invited since parents get education while the kids do their activities. For adults and children without diabetes, we do require a small registration fee that varies based on whether they stay overnight or not. Activities include a karate icebreaker and games, arts & crafts, relay games & volleyball (sometimes kickball), and then we give the kids free time with their parents before dinner (most people canoe on the lake during this time), and of course a hay-less "hay-ride" over to the campfire at the end of the evening.

    A diagnosis of Type 1 diabetes changes the life of a child forever. Days filled with school, sports, and activities are quickly replaced by blood tests, insulin injections, and carbohydrate calculations. Every step required to manage their diabetes is a step away from what children see as “normal.” But at Camp Sweeney, Type 1 diabetes is normal. And when diabetes disappears, every camper can show what makes them special, not what makes them different.
