A summer at Camp Sweeney is like no other experience you’ll ever have. Sweeney offers opportunities for hands on medical experience that can’t be found anywhere else, all against the backdrop of a summer camp built to serve children in need.LEARN MORE ABOUT OUR MISSION
“Camp Sweeney eliminates the stress that accompanies Type 1 diabetes, allowing campers to be themselves and conquer challenges they never dreamed were possible. I saw in every camper and counselor the desire to sacrifice and make the most of every moment together.”
Camp Sweeney counselors are trained to master the tools of diabetes care and management, including administration of blood tests and insulin injections. Counselors gain valuable hands-on experience working both autonomously and with a supportive team and, most importantly, make a difference in the lives of children with a life-long medical condition.
“My experience at camp was incredible. Not only did I learn so much about diabetes and what it takes to manage a chronic disease, but I also got to spend the summer with the most inspiring kids I’ve ever met.”
