When a child with type 1 diabetes leaves home, their parents are often stressed and anxious about their well-being. In many cases, kids with T1D are not allowed the opportunity to attend stay-away camps. Fortunately, there are diabetes camps specifically for kids with T1D. These camps are not only life changing for the kid and help teach them self-management skills, but these camps allow parents the opportunity to fully relax, sometimes for the first time since diagnosis. Below are some resources for more information on diabetes camps.
