DYS Big Shots Resident Camp is the only camp of its kind in Northwest Ohio to offer a week-long outdoor adventure for teenage youth with diabetes.
Parents site a dramatic improvement in attitude, carb counting and appropriate insulin coverage. Kids also show an increase in willingness to try new technologies and treatments like the insulin pump and CGM.
Camp helps kids learn to manage their diabetes independently while being supervised by a full Medical Staff. They also spend all week with counselors and other kids who have experienced life with Type 1 Diabetes.
