Camp BETA - Youth Diabetes Fund
About the Fund
The Camp BETA – Youth Diabetes Fund supports a free overnight camp for children between 9 and 15 who have Type 1 diabetes. Children spend the night at SIU Touch of Nature, where they can enjoy activities such as horseback riding, fishing and zip-lining. SIH registered nurses and dieticians are on hand to make sure the children are staying safe while they have fun.
Camp BETA is possible because of a collaborative effort between SIH and other organizations and individuals in the community. Partnerships include:
- SIH Staff and Nurses
- SIH Foundation
- SIU Touch of Nature
- SIU Dietetic Internship Program
- Diabetes Today Resource Team
- Individual and business donors
- Many parents and volunteers
