2021 Camping Season

camp accredited logoThe Jack Rua Camp for Children with Diabetes is a friendly place where youth with diabetes, ages 5 through 14, their siblings, and their friends benefit from hands-on learning experiences in Type 1 diabetes management and support within a fun and welcoming environment. Our mission is to foster friendships among children with diabetes, their siblings, and friends through a safe, active program while enabling them to learn about and face the common challenges of diabetes.
