About Swing Fore Diabetes
Every summer, more than 1/3 of our camp families rely on financial assistance to afford camp. Our goal is to never turn away a child with Type 1 Diabetes who wishes to attend camp. Please join us as we aim to raise more than $25,000 to support children and families living with type 1 diabetes.
While a week at camp costs over $1,000 per child, thanks to the generosity of the community and our supporters, we are able to reduce that amount to $375, as well as provide full camperships for families in need.
Our camp is a place where children and teens gain confidence in managing their diabetes. Our goal is to help each child grow toward living an independent life. Campers learn to test themselves and give insulin injections. They learn how food and exercise are linked with insulin, and how sports, illness, and stress interact with diabetes. Perhaps most important of all, Gales Creek campers learn that diabetes doesn’t have to prevent them from living active, satisfying lives.
