Diabetes summer camp is a week-long, overnight camping experience for children ages 6-13. Camp CoDiaK is held June 26-July 1 2011 at the New Ebenezer Retreat Center, a beautiful wooded, historical site located in Rincon, Georgia. Certified diabetes educators serve as on-site staff, including nurses, dietitians and other healthcare professionals. At specific times each day, staff tests the campers' blood sugar and provides snacks. Our goals are to:
- offer a fun, safe environment with medical supervision
- encourage diabetes self-management skills
- stimulate interaction among diabetics.
Supervised camp activities include:
- challenge courses
- arts and crafts
- paddle boats.
The cost of Camp CoDiaK is $350. Scholarships are available based on financial need. To apply for scholarship assistance or to register your child for Camp CoDiaK, contact us:
