with diabetes!

Dates:  July 18-24, 2021 - Click Here to Register!

Prior to registering, please see our COVID-19 Mitigation and Operations Plan here.

Summer campers can participate in endless activity choices!  

  • Explore nature trails.  
  • Have fun at arts & crafts.  
  • Meet new friends boating or playing basketball.  
  • Try your hand at archery and make a bulls-eye.  

Opportunities for adventure are many because we are a camp for teens who just happen to have diabetes.  You’ll explore many new adventures with your friends at camp.  You’ll also learn a lot about caring for your diabetes—it just comes naturally at camp, because everyone has diabetes.

Under supervision of medical professionals, campers learn to:

  1. check their blood-glucose levels
  2. administer insulin, and
  3. record results.  

By learning diabetes management, campers will build a sense of competence and take home new skills to enrich their everyday lives.

But don’t worry, we have no diabetes classes at Camp Setebaid!  Everything you learn, you pick up from the daily activities; in other words, what you learn is caught, not taught. 

The one similarity every program has is FUN!
