Camps for youth with type 1 diabetes (T1D) have grown in size and scope since they first emerged in the 1920s. Anecdotal evidence suggests that attending camp with other youth with T1D is beneficial, largely attributed to sharing fun, active experiences and removing the isolation of living with diabetes. However, few studies have evaluated the psychosocial and medical impacts of T1D camp attendance during and after camp sessions. In addition, T1D camps have been a setting for numerous studies on a variety of T1D-related research questions not related to camp itself, such as testing novel diabetes management technologies in an active, non-laboratory setting. This paper reviews the evidence of psychosocial and medical outcomes associated with T1D camp attendance across the globe, provides an overview of other research conducted at camp, and offers recommendations for future research conducted at T1D camp.

Ada Diabetes Camps Are A Home Away From Home

Ada Diabetes Camps Are A Home Away From Home

ADA Diabetes Camps Are a Home Away From Home Get started by finding a camp near you. Visit diabetes.org/camp for more information. Nearly all American Diabetes Association Diabetes Camp stories start the same: with tears. It's not that camp is terriblefar from it. But camp is often the first time children with diabetes have been away from their parents. Justin Thomas tells the story of his first summer at Camp Carolina Trails: "My parents forced me to go and dropped me off. A week later, they came to pick me up and couldn't find me," he says. "They heard my laughter on the other side of one of our large fields. I didn't want to come home. I was having too good of a time." The ADA's Family Link has hosted camps for children with diabetes for decades. Across the country, from Florida to Alaska, thousands of children attend day camps and sleep-away camps, all with other kids with diabetes, just like them. The camps are typical in many ways: hiking and horseback riding, arts and crafts, bonfires at night. But they're also staffed with endocrinologists, certified diabetes educators, and adults who have diabetes themselves. They're a safe haven for kids with diabetes. Nicole Sheanon, MD, a pediatric endocrine fellow at Cincinnati Children's Hospital, was diagnosed with type 1 diabete s at 10 years old. Later that summer, she attended her first diabetes camp. Now, she's on the medical staff of Camp Korelitz in Clarksville, Ohio, and other diabetes camps around the country. She remembers what it felt like to be surrounded by other people with diabetessomething she had never experienced before camp. "When I was first diagnosed, I was the only kid in my school with type 1 diabetes," she says. "[At camp], I was in a cabin with 12 other girls, and they all had type 1 diabetes like Continue reading >>

Why Camp | About Camp | Diabetes Education & Camping Association

Diabetes camps offer unique and exciting opportunities. Back-country adventures, surf and ski camps, day programs, trip camps, family camps and bring a friend programs are plentiful. Many camps now offer weekend and school vacation programs so that kids dont have to wait until summer. Every year, over 20,000 children in North America join to share diabetes and fun with friends. At the age of 15, I attended my first summer at Camp EDI (Exercise, Diet, and Insulin)-The Gloria Hirsch Camp; a camp offered through the American Diabetes Association in Missouri. I will never forget the first day of camp. As my mother drove me in, tears ran down my face because I didnt want to participate in the experience. I was worried that the way I managed this daily disease would be criticized, but instead, I found complete acceptance. I learned a lot over the course of my three years as a camper. Read More During those three years I learned many important lessons about type 1. One of the most valuable lessons was how important it was for youth to have a place they felt they belonged, a place where they could find support in managing diabetes. Camp allowed me to make lifelong friends that have stuck with me throughout the years. To this day, I still lean on these friends when diabetes days are long and hard. On those days, I remember the blessings that have come from diabetes, which has brought great people into my life, and allowed me to find a career that I am passionate about, CAMP! After each summer at camp, I had a stronger desire to keep working hard and becoming a healthier person. I wanted to be a role model to those living with diabetes. As soon as I discovered that I could make a professional career from camping I knew that this was the right path for me. It has truly changed my Continue reading >>

The Magic Of Diabetes Camp

The Magic Of Diabetes Camp

Campfires, bug juice, epic gaga, best friends these are the ingredients that stir up summer camp success. Whether your favorite is in the mountains, on the beach, at a college campus or in a city park, summer camp has enriched the lives of youth since 1861. The camp bubble will never be burst. Inside theres a magic mixture of risk and safety; friendship and respect; laughter and tears; self-awareness and confidence. The real world will never threaten the magic of camp. For youth with diabetes, the choice isnt whether to go to camp, because every young person with diabetes should go to camp. Its whether to go to diabetes camp or non-diabetes camp and when to start going. Day camps are a good transition for young children. Overnight weekend, week, month or all summer programs are options for older youth. The choice should be a carefully made family decision. The time is right when it feels right for each individual child and their family. Typically, overnight camps start accepting youth at about age 8, but your child might not be ready until much later. There are many factors that influence this decision. If you are uncertain, talk with the professionals in your childs life their pediatrician, teacher or school counselor. Most importantly, talk with your child. Parental urging is always acceptable but forced attendance may set your family up for a bad outcome. Lets be clear with the diabetes difference. Camps come in all shapes and sizes day and resident; sports and arts; trip and wilderness; and more. Diabetes camps and non-diabetes camps are similarly diverse. The key difference is that, in a diabetes camp, the key participants have diabetes and the program is developed around their needs. Diabetes camps may be bring a sibling or friend or bring your family. Still, the Continue reading >>

In addition, their broad network built through social media gives them a wide reach which can support IDF Europes outreach. As more and more children and young people are livingwith diabetes, it is vital that the voice of youth be heard andthat they play an active role in our mission to promote diabetes care, prevention and a cure worldwide.
