Embrace the Spirit of Camp
There's something magical about ADA Camps—where children living with diabetes can <em>just be kids</em>.
Leap Forward This Summer at Camp
Spending time at camp swimming, singing, skills-building, and making lifelong friendships is a rite of passage every child should experience.
Every summer, we help thousands of children living with diabetes:
- Make lifelong memories at a camp that’s prepared to support their unique care needs
- Rise to the challenge of achieving diabetes “firsts” on their own in a medically safe environment
- Forge new friendships and share adventures with peers who can relate to their experiences
- Build confidence to thrive at camp and beyond as we celebrate every milestone and how far they’ve come

"It's not an accident that our camper has attended ADA Camp six years in a row now. He always has a great time, makes and reconnects with friends, and learns things."
—ADA Camp Parent
Serious Fun Awaits at Camp
We understand what it takes to keep your child safe. Our team of physicians, nurses, dietitians, and counselors provide round-the-clock care so you have peace of mind while your camper is away. And we provide financial assistance so no child will miss out on camp just because of cost.
Camp positively impacts a wide-range of camper outcomes, including knowledge of diabetes management, management behaviors, confidence to manage diabetes, and emotional well-being.
Join us this summer!
We’re counting down the days until we’re back at camp. This summer will bring new breakthroughs, adventures, and friendships for every camper.
