The American Diabetes Association's Camp Colorado is held at beautiful Eagle Lake camp in the heart of Pike National Forest. Only 9 miles outside of Woodland Park, CO and a short distance from Colorado Springs, Camp Colorado is an idyllic summer camp setting. We encourage each camper to learn something new about diabetes management but never force education. At Camp Colorado we believe that each camper will take something away that is specific to that campers stage of development. And with three camp programs, one is sure to excite your child!

Here are the programs we offer:

Residential Camp, Boys & Girls, 8-14
"Rez" camp is what most people think of when summer camp is mentioned. Most campers stay in cabins on bunk beds and have the opportunity to do a number of camp activities. Archery, canoeing, riflery, swimming, crafts, camp Olympics, and capture the flag are familiar activities on the program agenda. Some new ones you might not have heard of before include the flight simulator (AKA "Vomitron"), the "blob" aqua jump, and the zipline.
COST: Members $540, Non-Members $580
(*Cost does include $50 non-refundable deposit due upon initial registration)

Wilderness Camp, Boys & Girls, 15-17
Wilderness camp is designed especially with teens in mind! Camper activities are created to promote leadership and team building with the intent of encouraging teens to become mentors. Common activities include rock climbing, rappelling, bouldering, mountain biking, white water rafting, ropes course, and more!
COST: Members $560, Non-Members $600
(*Cost does include $50 non-refundable deposit due upon initial registration)

Equestrian Camp, Girls only, 12-17
Does your daughter love horses? If so, then this is the program for her! Equestrian camp combines the fun of trail riding with the skill required for dressage, tack care, jumping, and horsemanship. CHA certified instructors work with campers throughout the week to ensure that your horse loving gal is learning something new. Campers are also able to do many of the activities available to "rez" campers!
COST: Members $655, Non-Members $695*
(*Cost does include $50 non-refundable deposit due upon initial registration)

So I wrote recently about how having someone who "gets" diabetes at your side can be so, so vital in a diabetes life. But what happens when the person you thought you could rely on fails you - in a major way? The night before the July 4th Holiday, I had a monster insulin reaction. By monster, I mean it was one of those cannot make sense of the world, cannot remember my name, cannot get out of bed and make it to the refrigerator kinds of low bloodsugars. ...
