Camp is a magical place.
The American Diabetes Association has transformed the lives of thousands of children with diabetes in Arizona by empowering them to independently manage their diabetes at 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.
2024 Camp AZDA will be held at Friendly Pines Camp in Prescott, AZ. Dates coming soon.
Join us in giving children living with diabetes the gift of camp!
