As many of you know November is Diabetes Awareness Month. We hope you will join us in providing a “home away from home” for children with Type 1 Diabetes. The mission of The Barton Center for Diabetes Education, Inc., is to improve the lives of children with insulin dependent diabetes through education, recreation and support programs which inspire and empower. Our programs include Clara Barton Camp, Camp Joslin, Barton Day Camps, Adventure Program, Vermont Overnight Camp, Family Camp and a wide array of year-round educational and recreational programs for children, families, and extended-family caregivers. All Barton programs promote proper diabetes management and health enhancement strategies. Participants attend from across the country as well as from several international locations.
Our programs provide participants with a combination of camping, fun, diabetes education, support and recreation in a non-clinical environment where they do not feel isolated and different due to the fact they have diabetes. Campers experience a wide variety of fun activities and ongoing support from friends and staff (many whom have diabetes themselves).
Help us recognize Diabetes Awareness Month this November by raising funds for our programs. Thank you for your support!
