Diabetes Day Camp

By Dick Gilbert

District 24 I Lions and Old Dominion University will sponsor a day camp for diabetic youth from southeast Virginia to be held in Chesapeake at the Triple R Ranch from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. May 22. The camp is free thanks to the Lions Club International Foundation. This unique program is for individuals with diabetes ages 6-18, providing the opportunity for youth with type 1 and 2 diabetes and their parents to learn more about diabetes management.

Campers will have the opportunity to enjoy fun-filled activities during the day camp, while parents are encouraged to join in for two parent-focused workshops during camper drop-off and pick up. Activities for the campers include horseback riding, rock climbing, archery, fishing, and more. For everyone’s safety, COVID protocol at camp will exceed CDC recommended guidelines.

The number of campers is limited. For more information, email Jennifer at lionjennifer43@gmail.com or call 757-409-1947 to register.
