If you have, or know of, a child with diabetes, then you should find out more about Camp Gilbert. Camp Gilbert is a wonderful summer camp just for kids with diabetes. Kids make lifelong friends doing all the fun things everyone does at summer camp, plus they learn lifetime lessons on managing their condition.

Camp Gilbert is staffed largely by volunteers and includes: physicians, nurses, social workers, dietitians, diabetes educators and experienced camp counselors. So parents feel confident knowing their child will have tons of fun and all their medical needs will be met.

This year’s camp is July 14th thru 19th on Lake Enemy Swim at NeSoDak Camp near Waubay, South Dakota. There is a Poker Run Fundraiser this Saturday, May 18th to raise money to support the camp.
