Diabetes-summer-camp-for-elementary-age-childrenWe want your child’s school experience to be as normal as possible, and the more they can care for themselves, the happier they will be.

We invite every child in the El Paso area who has diabetes or is at risk for diabetes to sign-up and take part in this fun week-long event.

Date and time:

June 22 through 26, 2015

8:00am until 4:00pm

Place:

Camp Lydia Mann

3641 Mattox Street

El Paso, Texas 79925

Suggested cost:

Our suggested cost to attend is $100 per child. The cost covers on-staff nurses, food, transportation and fun activities for the kids.

EPDA offers scholarship support to enable all children to attend and we feel very strongly that every child with diabetes should attend our Kid’s Camp regardless of their ability to pay.

If you know of any diabetic or pre-diabetic children in the El Paso area who cannot afford to pay for camp, please have them callĀ (915) 532-6280 or write us here.
