According to Camp Sweeney, they are not just a camp. Camp Sweeney recognizes that when a child is diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes, his or her life is changed forever. For a child with this condition, insulin injections and diet changes become a part of their daily routine. While kids may know what to do in order to remain healthy in their condition, this healthy lifestyle is not always easy to follow.
With Camp Sweeney, children not only learn about their condition, but they are also inspired to find the inner strength needed to stay healthy with diabetes. Camp Sweeney works hard to motivate kids into living a healthy lifestyle with the support of those who live the same way.
