Camp Roaring Sun is a camp exclusively for children ages 6 through 12 with diabetes who are treated at Nicklaus Children's Hospital.
The camp began in 1987 as a day camp and has grown into a week-long, sleepover camp. The campers enjoy a week of fun in the sun and activities that include nature walks, a trip to see a baseball game and swimming under the supervision of Nicklaus Children’s pediatric endocrinology nurses. The children’s blood levels are regularly monitored throughout the day while they socialize in a fun, safe and caring environment.
Camp Roaring Sun is sponsored by Nicklaus Children’s Hospital and Lions Club International.
