Camp Program Navigation
ADA Camp Carefree provides a dynamic camping
program, mixed with structured education, along with plenty of "teachable
which encourages campers to feel at ease and
“accepted” in a community where having diabetes is the rule, not the
exception. The campers learn to understand diabetes and the process of
self-management, under skilled and continuous medical supervision. It is
the hope of the staff, that these children go home feeling more
self-confident, self-reliant and having gained the knowledge they need to live
successful, full lives with diabetes. We want them to be able to say, “I
went to camp and had fun!” Many of these children come to camp not
knowing any other people with diabetes, especially other kids like themselves.
There are friendships made, which quite frankly, last a lifetime!
