What is Middle Shots?

Middle Shots Camp is a a great introduction to resident camp.  We pack all the fun of resident camp into an action-packed two (2) night experience.  Designed for campers 3-7 grade, the activities provide a unique experience that they can only get at diabetes camp.  They will meet other kids who manage the same daily challenges of type 1 diabetes and have fun while doing it. Examples of activities include:

  • Canoeing
  • Fishing
  • Swimming
  • Archery
  • Crafts
  • Dance
  • 50 ft Tree Climb

Our staff is comprised of nurse practitioners, nurses, CDE’s (certified diabetes educators), young adult counselors, a registered dietitian, and mental health support staff. Most of our staff manage diabetes or treat patients with diabetes every day.  They are highly qualified and are great mentors to our campers.  Ordinary interactions become diabetes teaching moments — we don’t need a classroom!

Included in the schedule for the week is diabetes education.  But the education is still fun.  We use activities, such as The Amazing Race and open panel discussions, to teach diabetes skills.  We combined fun games and group discussions to make sure that the campers leave camp with extra tools to manage their disease.

We strive to make sure that every kid is having fun and learning at camp.  We are proud that 100% of our camper parents would recommend camp to another family.  If you have questions or concerns about Middle Shots Camp, please contact our Camp Director, Cindy, at 419.291.1238 or cindy@dys4kids.org
