Learning to live with diabetes can be challenging, especially for children. Kids don't like feeling different from their peers.

We are pleased to offer the Camp Too Sweet program for children ages 8 to 16 who have type 1 or type 2 diabetes. This week-long summer program teaches young people with diabetes the self-management skills that they need to take care of themselves.

Our camp is staffed by experienced counselors and graduates of outdoor recreation programs. Additionally, Camp Too Sweet is supported by Erica Reynolds, M.D., Carilion Children’s pediatric endocrinologist, who is on-site at the camp. Licensed health care providers monitor the campers' diabetes management 24 hours a day.
