Camp Endres is a summer camp for children and teens with diabetes. Kids like to come to Camp Endres because of the many fun activities we have planned for them – swimming, horseback riding, archery, boating, hiking, fishing, climbing The Wall and playing capture the flag, just to name a few. But Camp Endres is more than just fun and games.
By increasing the exposure of these children and teens to diabetes education, disease management training and socialization with others who share similar experiences living with diabetes, campers with diabetes can live a happy and healthy life.
Campers of all ages not only learn from their own problem solving methods, but they watch other campers problem solve with counselors and medical staff. They learn from their own situations as well as from others. Camp Endres is a truly life changing experience.
