There could be a lot of struggle for people living with diabetes especially when they’re going through it alone. There could be frustration for both the child and the care givers.
WHY SHOULD YOU ALLOW YOUR CHILD GO TO A DIABETES CAMP?
Camp experience is always exciting and it makes all the difference!
Diabetes camp provides fun and excitement while creating an avenue to learn more about how to manage diabetes. It allows children living with diabetes and those at risk of developing type 2 diabetes to learn in a safe and fun environment. It builds a community of people who grow together knowing they are not alone. It’s also a great opportunity for networking.
Camp is a lifeline for children with diabetes to develop the critical skills they need to manage the disease. Children get to be surrounded with people who understand their fears and frustrations; people who ‘get it’.
They learn about how to manage their diet, understand the symptoms and how their daily activities affect their health
It also helps build Confidence. It might be all you need to get your child motivated in a medically safe environment while also acquiring social skills and lifelong relationships (diabuddies!).
