The Florida Diabetes Camp provides camping opportunities at various locations around the state for children with type 1 diabetes. Activities are designed to meet the specific needs of each age group, but all camps feature traditional land and water activities. Pediatric endocrinologists, nurses and other medical staff are in attendance at each camp to provide on-site diabetes care and age-appropriate diabetes education.
Camp Winona is divided into two sections, with one camp for campers ages 9 through 12 and one for ages 12 through 14, Winona camps are the largest programs offered. Each camp is staffed by three doctors, nurses, psychologists, and nutritionists. Winona is a rural setting on beautiful Lake Winona just outside of the Ocala National Forest. Activities for campers include swimming, canoeing, funyaking, and blobbing. Campers also learn teamwork through a high ropes course, team sports and cabin challenges. Nightly activities include a beach party, carnival, dance and a scavenger hunt.
