The Albany Area YMCA and the Phoebe Diabetes Care Center, are joining forces to create CAMP KWD.
It's a summer camp for kids who have been diagnosed with type 1 diabetes, type 2 diabetes, prediabetes or metabolic syndrome OR have been told they are at risk for developing diabetes.
Camp KWD is for ages 8-13 and is taking place this week at the Albany Area YMCA Central Facility, 1701 Gillionville Road in Albany.
Camp activities include swimming at the YMCA indoor pool, sports such as basketball, volleyball, racquetball and tennis, arts & crafts, kid-friendly workouts, movies, and a field day.
Phoebe dieticians and nurses provide important information on a kid's level. Campers will learn about weight management, healthy meals and snacks, what to expect from a diagnosis, and the importance of exercise
At this unique camp, Phoebe nurses monitor blood sugar and the health of the campers at all times, so parents can be assured that their children are having fun in a safe environment.
At Camp KWD, all campers, whether they currently have diabetes or are at high risk, will learn how to make good choices and live a healthy lifestyle. Campers will learn that being healthy can be FUN!
Camp KWD is especially important for children who have been told by a doctor that they are at risk for developing diabetes so that campers may learn lifestyle changes that can improve their health and self-esteem, and that may help them reduce the risk of developing diabetes.
Camp time is 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., but early drop off at 7 a.m. and late pick-up until 6 p.m. is available at no extra charge.
