We’re huge fans of diabetes camps for children! They give kids the opportunity to be around other children who are going through the same things they are, provides them with vital tools to help them better mange their condition, and is a time for them to have an amazing time with their peers with the supervision of people who know how to help them in a diabetic emergency.
Camps for children with diabetes are a great way for them to realize they’re not alone!
But camps aren’t just for the kiddos anymore!
Diabetes Training Camp boasts that it’s a place for people to “train, learn, and connect.” The camp in Pennsylvania helps adults learn to integrate diabetes treatment with exercise, diet, and a positive attitude. And the best part?
Making new friends and having fun, of course. After all, it’s camp!
In the video below, Dr. Matthew Corcoran, founder and medical director of the week-long training experience, takes a few minutes to show us around his awesome camp for adults, while discussing the benefits of camp for grownups.
Take a look, and as always, make sure to let us know what you think in the comments below!
