Students who have been diagnosed with type 1 or type 2 diabetes require special management of their health care needs at school. This allows them to be ready to learn and have access to equal educational opportunities as their peers. It ensures that students with diabetes are safe at school. In the long-term, research shows that intensive management of diabetes helps to decrease the complications of the disease.

American Diabetes Association Camp Montana
August 4-9, 2019
Beartooth Christian Camp, Fishtail, MT
Camp Montana is a lifeline for children with diabetes to develop the critical skills needed to thrive while managing this disease. Attending summer camp helps children develop social skills, self-respect and life-long friendships. We give kids the opportunity to meet other kids just like them while fostering independence, building self-confidence and gaining an awareness of a healthy lifestyle through education, nutrition, exercise, emotional well-being and glucose control.
