Find a list of camps  camp list

Numerous kids' summer camps throughout Ontario and across the Greater Toronto Area specialise in dealing with children suffering from diabetes. Camp counselors are specially trained to understand diabetes, blood sugar testing, epi-Pens and all related needs. Typical summer camp activities are specially tailored for diabetic kids and concerns related to that disorder.

Diabetes camps have many enjoyable camp activities like swimming, arts and crafts, hiking and boating. Issues like diet or medication are especially taken up at these camps. Diabetes camps are also offered as family weekend camps, overnight camps and day camps. It is estimated that worldwide camps serve 15,000–20,000 campers with diabetes each year.

At camp, each camper is given a comprehensive health history form to be completed by his/her family and a health evaluation form completed by the camper‘s physician detailing the camper’s past medical history, immunization record, and diabetes regimen. The home insulin regimen of each camper is followed as closely as possible, though alterations in insulin dosage may need to be made for extreme physical activity, such as prolonged hikes or active water sports. Each camp has a doctor with expertise in managing type 1 and type 2 diabetes.

Many things to learn about diabetes. Diabetes educators and advanced practice diabetes nurses may also be present. Such camps also give information about diabetes-related emergencies. Camps may also feature the help of medical professionals, physicians, nurses and dietitians who are experienced in diabetes care. Diabetes supplies should be monitored and given out by responsible medical staff.Counselors who are also diabetic and former campers may also be present.
