Camp Lakota is held at the Wisconsin Lions Camp which is located on 440 acres in Rosholt, WI (17 miles northeast of Stevens Point, WI). This includes a sparkling lake for boating, fishing, paddle boating, sailing and all water activities. There are many other activities including the famous Mud Pit! Cabins are side by side with a lounge area connecting the 2 cabins which are air conditioned, fully accessible and have modern bathrooms. Camp facilities accommodate 150 campers per week. Cabins accommodate 8-9 campers and a counselor. A typical day is swimming, education, boating, arts & crafts, having fun and making new friends. At camp we have nurses, doctors, and dietitians who are assigned to each cabin of 8-9 children. ADA medical staff provide campers the information and skills they need to live successfully with diabetes in any situation. We achieve your child's main goal in attending camp - having fun and meeting other kids with diabetes. The true cost of sending a child to camp is $1,682. It is through the partnership of the Wisconsin Lions Foundation who offers their camp facility; the pharmaceutical companies who donate the medical supplies; and the healthcare professionals who donate their time and expertise at Camp, that the Wisconsin Area American Diabetes Association is able to offer Camp Lakota for only $135 per camper.

Session 1: June 16-21; Session 2: June 23-28. Fee is $135

In high school biology, we learned that another term for carbohydrates is "polysaccharides". These break down into "discaccharides", and further into "monosaccharides". These small-molecule carbohydrates are more commonly known as "sugars". Similarly, we learned that fats are (after a long process) broken down into monosaccharides, and parts of proteins are broken down into these as well. We learned about three common disaccharides —...
