Montana Youth Diabetes Alliance

We've got Diabetes Covered

MYDA is a year-round community!

Countdown to Camp MYDA 2023!

Educate. Inspire. Empower

Montana Youth Diabetes Alliance (MYDA) is a nonprofit organization dedicated to strengthening children, teens, and their families as a whole and equipping them with the education that will better sustain a healthy life while living with Type 1 diabetes (T1D). The life-altering diagnosis of Type 1 diabetes can be isolating and overwhelming, adding new and critical things to an individual's daily routine. Day-to-day diabetes management requires the interaction of the entire family, from checking blood sugar, counting carbohydrates, dosing insulin, adjusting for physical activity, and supporting mental health.

 

MYDA supports all T1D families in Montana by providing year-round educational opportunities and resources at events such as our yearly summer camp and Family Retreat. In addition, MYDA also provides out-of-pocket reimbursement for self-management T1D-related expenses.

Until there is a cure, MYDA will continue to Educate, Empower and Inspire children living with T1D!

What we do...

Camp MYDA

Camp MYDA hosts a week-long overnight summer camp for ages 8-17 hosted on beautiful Flathead Lake. During camp, campers enjoy a wide variety of traditional summer camp activities with diabetes education integrated throughout the course of each day. Counselors and clinicians provide medical supervision and teach campers new diabetes management skills and lessons. Campers gain a sense of community and independence as they learn and have fun with other children who have type 1 diabetes.
