Mark your calendars and plan to join us for DECA's 2017 Diabetes Camping Symposium taking place on Monday, February 20th. The meeting will have great value for diabetes camping staff and volunteers as they receive enlightening information from inspiring speakers. The meeting is being held as a Kindred Event of the American Camping Association's National Conference in Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA.
The American Camp Association (ACA) will hold its Medically-Focused Camp Programs Track at its National Conference, which will take place February 21-24, 2017, in Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA. Camps that welcome campers with health and medical issues require specific, tailored training to ensure a safe and enjoyable experience for all. The Diabetes Education and Camping Association (DECA) and SeriousFun Children’s Network will work in collaboration with ACA to develop the content of the Medically-Focused Camp Programs Track.
