Did you know that there is a camp just for kids with diabetes?  Camp can be a wonderful experience where your child can spend time with others like them and have a fun week while having their diabetes safely monitored by professionals.  This is a great time for parents and caregivers to have a break as well!  Breakthrough T1D does not provide an option for camp but we know the importance of the camp experience for kids living with T1D. We help by promoting camps provided by our friends at the American Diabetes Association.  Camp happens in the summer but registration is open now!   You can click here to find a camp near you.  Questions?  Contact Lora Furstner at lfurstner@diabetes.org.
