American Diabetes Association Camp Sealth
Camp Sealth is a program owned and operated by Camp Fire USA. The American Diabetes Association recruits leading medical professionals in our local community to provide all medical care for campers with diabetes. It is hoped that each child who attends Camp grows as an individual through the ideas and experiences shared. The ADA Washington State philosophy is that children and teens with diabetes can be successfully mainstreamed into existing traditional summer camp programs. This means that ADA Campers at Camp Sealth will be in cabins with children with and without diabetes, so they can come to camp with their best friend or sibling! However, be assured that medical staff, testing supplies and low blood sugar treatments are available throughout daytime activities and during the night as needed. Additionally, while the food choices at meal times are not always sugar free, registered dietitians are available to help campers work these foods into their meal plan. With this philosophy, campers emerge from Camp Sealth with a better understanding of how to live as someone with diabetes in real life situations.
