Camp Angels is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization that helps to provide funding for children with Type 1 Insulin Dependent Diabetes to attend specialized summer camps.
Since 2002, thanks to the generous donations of individuals, corporations, and foundations, we have worked to provide scholarship funds for children living with diabetes to experience the joy of summer camp.
Making summer camps possible for kids with diabetes means more than just an anonymous donation, it gives a financially challenged family the opportunity to support their child in learning self-management skills all in a safe and comfortable environment. Diabetes summer camps offer classic camp activities, as well as staff and medical professionals who are experienced with type 1 diabetes care. The camps help to prepare and equip children with knowledge on how to manage their diabetes. For example, children learn how to give themselves proper injections of insulin, what foods are best for their diets, and how to manage a balance of recreation and diet.
By attending specialized diabetes camps that offer a supportive and unique environment, recipients of the Camp Angels' schlorships also gain the knowledge that they are not alone with their diabetes.
You can help support a child with diabetes to a summer camp experience by calling us today at (207) 583-6963 or click here now to donate online.
