Benefiting BARTON CENTER FOR DIABETES EDUCATION, INC.

Welcome to the fundraising page for the 5th Annual SLAMDiabetes Barton Classic Wiffle Ball Tournament! Money raised supports The Barton Center for Diabetes Education's Campership Fund. It is a fun-filled day of competition supporting children and families with type 1 diabetes.

The mission of the Barton Center for Diabetes Education, Inc., located in North Oxford, Massachusetts, is to improve the lives of children with insulin dependent diabetes through education, recreation and support programs which inspire and empower. For over 83 years, The Barton Center has provided a summer-long residential camp program for children with insulin-dependent diabetes. The Barton Center significantly expanded its services in 2010 to include a second residential camp, Camp Joslin in Charlton, MA.  The Barton Center also operates adventure programs, family camp, day camps in NY, CT and MA, and a wide array of year-round educational programs for children, families, and caregivers. During the summer of 2015, we have added a one week co-ed overnight camp being held in Vermont. All Barton programs promote proper diabetes management and health enhancement strategies in a safe environment.
