    Trophy Points:
    Diabetes Safari is an annual co-educational, not-for-profit international camp created to offer a safe and enjoyable context in which young persons 7 to 18 years of age who use insulin in the treatment of the hyperglycemia that may often accompany type 1 diabetes mellitus can learn lessons vital to their health and survival. Campers of every nationality are invited to attend.

    Together with other young people and adult health care professionals who also have diabetes, each Camper has opportunities to apply new learning that he or she has gained about insulins, foods, physical activity, and recent therapeutic and technological advances in order to facilitate blood glucose control and to thus minimize or avoid the long-term complications of chronically high blood sugar levels.

    In this bilingual (English/Spanish) gathering, professional Staff members teach Campers about the needs of persons with diabetes and answer their questions on any diabetes topic whatsoever. On-site medical supervision is integrated into all aspects of diabetologic education.

    Full details (camp philosophy, planned activities, members of Staff, accomodations, menus, maps), as well as registration forms, are included, in English and Spanish, at www.diabetes-safari.com
