Diabetes Camps for Kids

Volunteering at Diabetes Camp
Mar 6, 2009 | 
It was in the spring of 2005 that I received a call from the director of the diabetes camp in the state where I lived and worked as a sales rep for a blood glucose meter company.  He was calling to ask if I would volunteer as a counselor at the week-long camp, which served around 200 campers, the vast majority with type 1 diabetes. I'd known for years that counselors were always in demand at the camp, but had never stepped forward to volunteer.  I'd heard the stories of how tough and exhausting it was keeping up with your group, performing 2:00 AM blood sugar checks, and ensuring that they all stayed safe and had fun.  Frankly, I'd always had serious doubts as to whether I was up to it.  This, however, was the first time that I had been directly asked to volunteer, and something inside me made me grudgingly agree.  As I drove to the campsite to begin that week in June, though, I'd be lying if I did not admit to being as nervous as any of the kids who were attending.
