MIAMI, FL – The Miami Children's Hospital Diabetes Youth Camp is a camp exclusively for children with diabetes who are treated at Miami Children's Hospital (MCH). The camp began in 1987 as a day camp and has grown into a week-long, sleepover camp at the A.D. Barnes Park in Miami.
Under the constant supervision of MCH nurses and other staff members, the campers engage in fun activities including movie-watching, playing sports and bowling. The children’s blood levels are regularly monitored throughout the day while they socialize in a safe and caring environment.
