From Diabetes Youth Services:

"Camp is all about firsts!  We take every opportunity to encourage the kids to try new ways to manage their diabetes. Campers experience a wide variety of fun firsts outside of their diabetes as well –  first time staying away from home, climbing the alpine tower, archery, or fishing.  They will have a blast enjoying all the fun activities camp has to offer and learn strategies for managing diabetes.

DYS has a long history of campers making friends to whom they can relate. Every child with diabetes has felt alone at some point, but camp is a unique place where they know that they are never alone.


At Hot Shots Camp your child will learn skills, form friendships, and make memories they will cherish for a lifetime!"
