Each summer, the American Diabetes Association’s Camp Sugar Falls provides children with diabetes in the mid-Tennessee area a special place to play, laugh, share and learn about diabetes management. Camp Sugar Falls is a day-camp experience for children ages 6 to 12 that have been diagnosed with type 1 or type 2 diabetes. The camp offers an exciting week of recreational and educational activities that focus on nutrition, lifestyle habits, self-esteem and team building.
This year Camp Sugar Falls was honored to have Dr. Maitland DeLand in attendance. Dr. DeLand spoke to the campers about how they are all heroes and should be proud of their great accomplishments.
