Florida Diabetes Camp-Teen Weekend
January 18 - 20, 2019, De Leon Springs, FL
This is a weekend for children with Type 1 Diabetes and their friends ages 12-17. To be held at YMCA Camp Winona-a magical place where friendships come to life!
Teen Weekend is for youngsters age 12-17, and campers have the option to bring a friend of the same sex and approximate age. This weekend program allows for interactions amongst peer groups, as well as a learning experience for campers without diabetes. Educational sessions relating to “teen issues,” “school issues,” and “How-to-be-a-friend” are led by pediatric endocrinologists, nurses, dieticians and mental health professionals. We understand that networking and the support of a teen’s peers is critical at this age, so we provide fun and interactive activities such as a beach party, luaus, casino night, and a lot of land sports.
