The Miami Children’s Hospital Diabetes Youth Camp is a camp exclusively for children with diabetes who are treated at Miami Children’s Hospital (MCH).

The camp began in 1987 as a day camp and has grown into a week-long, sleepover camp at the A.D. Barnes Park. Under the constant supervision of MCH nurses and other staff members, the campers engage in fun activities including movie watching, playing sports and bowling.

During a visit to the Seaquarium on Wednesday, July 25, the campers learned about manatees and their diets. They each got to feed the manatees with the help of on-staff veterinarians.

More information about the Miami Seaquarium is available online at here.
