Are you looking for a fun and safe way to introduce your 5-15 years old with type 1 diabetes to the camping experience? Look no further than Barton’s summer day camps! Each day is filled with the kind of typical day-camp activities such as swimming, indoor and outdoor sports, arts and crafts, and music. What's more, in a place where every other kid is just like your child, they will have the opportunity to play some special diabetes games, while having their Blood Glucose Monitoring and insulin doses taken care of by trained counselors who all have type 1 diabetes themselves. Barton’s summer day camps are located in Massachusetts, Connecticut and New York and provide a great introduction to the camping experience for children with diabetes.
