ADA: Summer camp improves disease management in type 1 children

February 7, 2016

Children with type 1 diabetes who attend a diabetes summer camp showed increased self-management skills, increased diabetes knowledge and better emotional well-being after completing the program, according to survey results released by the American Diabetes Association and Lilly Diabetes.

In a 3-year, online survey conducted between 2013 and 2015 with more than 6,500 caregivers, the number of children with a clear understanding of diabetes management increased by 11% after attending an ADA camp, and the number of attendees with the ability to manage diabetes-related problems independently increased by 10%. Newly diagnosed campers showed the greatest change, with 19% of children improving in their ability to manage disease-related issues. Children attending camp programs also reported increased confidence and lower diabetes-related stress.
