A week long day camp in July, for children ages four through thirteen, with Type 1 Diabetes. Panther Day Camp will be held at Camp McCullough in Covington.  For information on Camp McCullough, please visit their web site at:  campmccullough.org   There is a "gallery" showing pictures of their campground. The camp experience allows children with Type 1 Diabetes to meet other children with diabetes and talk with adults who have grown up with diabetes.

Diabetes education is an important part of Panther Day Camp, however, the emphasis is on having fun, building friendships and sharing common concerns.  Presently there is no cure for diabetes, but with medical supervision, exercise, healthy eating and insulin, a full and active life-style is possible.
