Free Virtual Camp for Kids with Diabetes and Their Families
Posted May 6, 2021
We’d like to encourage you to share the summer 2021 dates for the American Diabetes Association (ADA) Imagine Camp with your young patients with diabetes and their families. ADA Imagine Camp is free, virtual and connects kids to adventure, education, mentors and fun. It is designed to facilitate an at-home experience connecting kids and their families.
During the summer program, families can expect:
- Small group and all-camp interactive online discussions and activities with the camp counselors who have been doing this for years.
- Camp boxes complete with an ADA camp shirt, ready-to-go activities, and so much more.
- Age-appropriate diabetes education and games to enhance knowledge and confidence.
- And, of course, FUN!
All Imagine Camp experiences are developed to provide opportunities for children with diabetes to forge life-long, sustainable relationships, overcome feelings of isolation, and gain self-confidence. ADA Imagine Camp invites kids and their families to become part of a community where they can thrive together.
