TJoin us in supporting Camp AZDA in 2022!
Camp is a magical place.
We are so excited to be bringing back an in-person camp experience in 2022. The American Diabetes Association has transformed the lives of thousands of children with diabetes in our Arizona by empowering them to independently manage their diabetes through Camp AZDA — a week-long, residential summer camp for children and teens with type 1 or type 2 diabetes. The camp program includes 24-hour medical supervision, meals and snacks, housing, fun activities, and most diabetes supplies. Camp medical staff provide campers information and skills they need to SUCCESSFULLY LIVE WITH DIABETES in any situation.
The main goal of Camp AZDA is to allow campers to feel at ease and accepted in a community where having diabetes is the rule, not the exception. Children go home feeling more self-confident, self-reliant, and having gained the knowledge they need to LIVE FULL LIVES with diabetes. Many children come to camp not knowing any other people with diabetes, especially kids like themselves. FRIENDSHIPS are made which literally last a lifetime. The 2022 Arizona Camp for Kids with Diabetes will be held in June at Friendly Pines Camp in Prescott, AZ. Join us in giving children living with diabetes the gift of camp!
