1. Camp Victory – Located near Leesville, Louisiana, within the rolling hills of Lake Vernon. Our campers are educated daily about diabetes in many ways. In addition to the fun educational games they play with our dietitian interns, they will also experience many “informal teaching moments,” a sort of learning without knowing it. These moments occur many times throughout the day, whether it be carbohydrate counting, drawing up and injecting insulin or learning about site rotation. Activities at Camp are geared to all ages. The younger children will enjoy swimming, art and crafts, archery, playground equipment, fishing, nature, dances and an awards ceremony. The program for the teens will include swimming, canoeing, paddle boats, nature, dances, skits, archery, volleyball and an awards ceremony. All activities are supervised by qualified staff.
Camp Victory is for children between the ages of 6-11, and is offered July 12 – July 18, 2015.
