Continuous Glucose Monitors - Sensors

We will provide the following:

1.  All vial insulin Humalog, NovoLog, Apidra, Lantus, Levemir, NPH (NovoLin only)

2. All syringes

3. All testing supplies; meters, test strips, single-use lancets.  If camper is on a pump with a meter that is used with the pump – we will not use their meter.  They will need to use our meter and manually enter Bg into their pump.

4. Glucagon ER kits – please do not bring your kits.

5. All medical staff are trained and carry Epi-pens.  You may bring your child’s Epi-pen so we can check their dosing  instructions.

We will not provide the following:

1. Insulin pens or cartridges for pens (ie; NovoLog Flex pens, Humalog Kwik pens, Lantus Solostar pens, Novolog cartridges for the Echo or NovoPen Junior or Humalog cartridges for Luxura pens), no Regular insulin (Humulin Regular), no NPH (Humulin NPH).  Staff prefer that you not bring your pens to camp as it is difficult to store each individual camper’s pen.  We encourage you to leave your pens at home and we will have campers use syringe/vial insulin that we supply.

 2.  Pump supplies – infusion sets, cartridges, adhesive wipes, adhesive remover wipes, transparent dressings, batteries. Please bring extra of everything your camper will need – we suggest bringing double the amount of supplies your camper would need for a normal week! 


 If your camper is on a T:Slim insulin pump, please make sure their pump is FULLY CHARGED and that you bring their charger.

Campers may not wear or bring their sensors to camp.
