What is the “purpose” of diabetes summer camps?
Is the “education” the sole (sic true) purpose? Or is it a beautiful byproduct?
Whatever the activities; canoeing, tennis, archery, hiking, bonfires, polar bear swimming, arts and crafts, etc., etc… are THOSE “diabetes” activites, diabetes education (ie learning moments) per se or simply activites where people ~my age~ are doing something all together.who just happen to all be diabetics!
For some of us camp was long, long ago (Camp Firefly (PA) late 70’s). So I thought I’d ask… what’s your take, your view on what happens at a diabetic summer camp? Is education slipped into everything thats done or only at particular times with very specific people…
