The Jack Rua Camp for Children with Diabetes is a friendly place where youth with diabetes, ages 5 through 14, their siblings, and their friends benefit from hands-on learning experiences in Type 1 diabetes management and support within a fun and welcoming environment. Our mission is to foster friendships among children with diabetes, their siblings, and friends through a safe, active program while enabling them to learn about and face the common challenges of diabetes.

The Jack Rua Camp for Children with Diabetes runs for 6-weeks during the months of July and August and is held at beautiful Camp Welch, located at 127 North Main Street in Assonet, MA. The program’s small enrollment and staff-to-camper ratio ensure a safe and high-quality camp program in which the campers receive plentycamp-acc of supervision from exceptional role models, take part in a variety of camp experiences, and learn something new every day. Program areas include arts and crafts, nutrition and diabetes education, swimming in pools, archery, and outdoor fun in multiple athletic fields.
