soo im thinking about going to some diabetic camps...and being a counselor at one of them? any advice? anyone been to a camp like this?
How old are you? If you're looking for a camp job for this summer it's probably too late (they hire in the spring). There may still be openings if you want to attend as a camper.
I started camp as soon as I could, at age 7 and continued until I was 14. In college I worked a couple summers as a counselor, but it was at Girl Scout camps, not diabetes camp.
Diabetes won't stop you, but be prepared for a serious insulin decrease at first. Diabetes camp was one of the best experiences of my life because I got to be a normal person while being surrounded by people who understand diabetes and live with it themselves.
thanks!(: im 15 and just got diagnosed 3 months ago! and why should i be prepared for a insulin decrease? my doctor suggested that they were looking for people like me to be counselors and said i should go to my own! it sounds really fun though, because their aren't a lot of people my age who have type 1 diabetes.:)
