Camp Sweeney: Winter Newsletter

March 17, 2011

Tired of Winter? Get Ready for Summer! Camp Sweeney News: JDRF is excited to share with you Camp Sweeney’s Winter Newsletter.


It’s not just a camp.

When a child is diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes, his or her life is changed forever. Insulin injections, pump site changes, blood-sugar tests, and a diet plan become a part of the daily routine for a child with diabetes.

At Camp Sweeney, we believe that simply teaching children about diabetes is just not enough. Our goal is that every child who attends our camp will not only learn about his or her condition, but will find the inner strength each day to do what it takes to live a healthy lifestyle.

It’s a lifestyle.

JDRF is sharing this information about Camp Sweeney as a resource for your family. JDRF does not promote any one specific camp over another and encourages all of our families to do their research to find the camp that is best for their child living with diabetes.

Last year, JDRF partnered with the Diabetes Education Camping Association (DECA) to promote diabetes awareness, diabetes camping programs and diabetes research worldwide.

While searching for a cure is our number one priority, JDRF is also committed to improving lives and this includes emotional health.

Diabetes Camps help children and families with diabetes lead healthier, happier, and more productive lives through good diabetes management. Their work is unparalleled in motivating and supporting children with diabetes and their families to stay on top of diabetes management everyday. Please visit the DECA website to learn more about Diabetes Camps that you might be interested in.
