Camp Setebaid® at Swatara

Exclusively for youth with diabetes ages 13-18, Camp Setebaid at Swatara offers age-specific summer camp programs which allow campers to feel at ease and accepted in a community where having diabetes is the norm, not the exception.

Camp Setebaid at Swatara is held in Bethel, Pennsylvania, just 35 minutes East of Harrisburg and a little over an hour West of Philadelphia.

Under skilled medical supervision, campers also learn to better understand diabetes and the process of self-management by checking their blood-glucose levels, administering insulin, and recording results.  

As campers participate in daily events, they will gain new confidence in managing diabetes while maintaining an active lifestyle.

But don’t worry, we have no classes at Camp Setebaid! Everything you learn, you pick up from the daily activities.
