'Y' offers camps this week


The Albany YMCA, in conjunction with Phoebe Diabetes Care Center, presents Camp KWD and Camp FIT. Camp KWD is for kids ages 8-13 with type 1 or type 2 diabetes, or those who have a family history of diabetes.

Camp is also open to kids who have pre-diabetes, metabolic syndrome or have been told that they are at risk for developing diabetes.

A Phoebe dietitian will offer expert advice on an age-appropriate level, and throughout camp, Phoebe nurses will monitor blood glucose before and after  various activities.

 Camp FIT is fun and educational for kids ages 8-13 who need to live a healthier lifestyle for weight management or to reduce the risk of developing health-related conditions.

Phoebe dietitians and nurses will work together with YMCA fitness staff to provide fun, engaging and informative activities that are age-appropriate. Participants will be inspired to adopt a healthier lifestyle, while acquiring new tools for success and making new friends. 

Both Camp KWD and Camp FIT will be held June 16-20 at the YMCA Central Facility, 1701 Gillionville Road, Albany.

Planned camp activities include:  Swimming, Sports, Games, Arts & Crafts, Creative Movement, Movies, Turbo Kidz workout, Field Day, Family Zumba, educational sessions on weight management, healthy meals and snacks, the importance of exercise, and more.
