There are many camps held in states around the world for children with diabetes. Here in Cincinnati the ADA puts on a camp called Camp Korelitz at Camp Joy in August.

Camp Korelitz is a week-long residential camp for children living with type 1 or type 2 diabetes. In 2016 Camp Korelitz will be held at beautiful Camp Joy, a 315 acre camp site nestled in the beautiful rolling hills of Warren County in Clarksville, Ohio between Cincinnati and Dayton.
Campers enjoy meeting other children with diabetes and spending time outdoors while participating in swimming, canoeing, arts and crafts, ropes courses, climbing walls, archery, and nutrition and diabetes education games and discussions. Campers are supervised 24 hours a day by doctors, nurses, dietitians and counselors thoroughly trained in diabetes management. Join us for a week of fun and adventure you will never forget!

CIT Information

Ages: 15
15 year olds are able to come to camp as counselors-in-training (CIT). This program is designed to prepare those interested in becoming junior counselors and counselors with a taste of what it might be like to make the transition in coming years.
During the first part of the camp week, this group will participate in leadership building activities in addition to their regular camp program. On Friday, this group will be assigned to a younger cabin as a CIT. CITs will be evaluated on their performance at the end of the week to determine if they are ready to be Junior Counselors when they are 16 years old.
