Summer Camps and Programs for
Children with Special Health Care Needs
Finding a summer camp or program is only part of sending your child to
camp. Other issues to think about include how to communicate with camp
staff, what to pack, and how to help if your child gets homesick. These
articles and resources address these concerns.
Sending Your Child with Special Needs to Camp
Kids Health for Parents provides information about getting ready to send
your child with special needs to summer camp. How to share information
with camp staff, what to pack, and dealing with anxiety and homesickness
are discussed.
www.kidshealth.org/parent/system/ill/sending_child_camp.html
Finding a Camp for Your Child with Special Needs
Kids Health for Parents provides a guide with information on the types of
camps, the benefits of camps, how to search for and research a camp, and
what questions to ask camp staff once you narrow down your choices.

Considerations for sending your child with a disability to camp for the
first time: Discover Camp
National Center on Physical Activity and Disability provides Information on
selecting and preparing for camp, a list of frequently asked questions for
camps, how to continue the activities and skills your child enjoyed at camp

Our goals are to provide a safe, healthy, and
enjoyable camp experience; enable campers to meet
and share their experiences with other diabetic youth;
and to empower campers to become responsible for
individual control of their health.
Campers receive optimum diabetes care from local
physicians, diabetes educators, pharmacists, and
dieticians.
Our 24-hour medical staff monitors diet and supervises
insulin administration and blood sugar testing.
Campers have the tools and resources to successfully
manage their diabetes while at camp by balancing
their activity level with their food and insulin intake.
