Camps Instill Hope and Support Long-term Success

Diabetes camps offer unique experiences to campers in a camp setting. Campers learn critical diabetes self-management skills that can set them up for a lifetime of good diabetes management and often come to find – many for the first time – that there are others out there just like them.

"One of our goals is to help our campers see that they are not alone and that they do have a future despite the challenges inherent in having a chronic illness like diabetes," said, Mark Moyer, Executive Director of Setebaid Services, which operates four diabetes camps, and Acting President of the Diabetes Education and Camping Association.

Supporting Diabetes Camp Since 2001

Lilly Diabetes has a long history of supporting diabetes camps. Lilly is one of the largest providers of insulin donations and provides a broad range of programs and resources that help bring the camp experience to life for each child.
