Montana's ONLY overnight
Camp MYDA is a place where there’s nothing unusual about having Type 1 Diabetes. There’s no need to explain blood sugar testing, finger pricks, insulin injections, ketones, “lows,” boluses, or carb counting. Everyone here understands!
We aren’t like a trip to the endo’s office, but we have endocrinologists, physician assistants, and dieticians supporting nursing staff will be there. We aren’t a classroom of lectures and chalkboard diagrams, but we have education woven into camp with impromptu learnings during activities, meal time, and casual conversations.
We are a community dedicated to the learning and growth of our campers living with Type 1 Diabetes. The encouragement campers get from their peers and staff members do more for their independence than any formal attempts do.
Campers will tell you it’s their favorite week of the year.
After a week at summer camp, participants:
Can establish positive patterns for living with diabetes
Know how to build friendships and a social support network
Have conversations or take part in activities with role models living with type 1 diabetes.
Learn skills to better self-manage their diabetes
For Campers & Parents
Although the overall experience of Summer Camp is “priceless” we can thank our generous donors and corporate partners for their collaborative efforts with MYDA.
