Little Shots Day Camp is designed especially for younger children
(age 6-9) who have diabetes. Intermingled with the educational
sessions are fun-filled themed recreational activities, games
and arts and crafts. All activities are designed to promote
confidence and teach techniques for managing their diabetes.
Children value the opportunity to spend an
entire week with 35 other children and positive teen role models
who also have diabetes. For a short time, your child won’t
feel like the “only one” who has diabetes! Kids leave camp
with a can-do attitude and new friends they will treasure for
Nearly 90% of parents report that their child
needs fewer reminders to perform self-care tasks after spending
a week at camp.
Campers, parents and extended family come
together to celebrate each camper’s achievements at the family
picnic and awards ceremony on Thursday evening before the final
day of camp.
