St. Anthony's Memorial Hospital will sponsor its annual C.A.N.D.Y. (Camping Activities for Normal Diabetic Youth) day camp for diabetic children Thursday and Friday, June 20 and 21, from 9:00am to 4:00pm each day at Evergreen Hollow Park in Effingham. Children ages five through 12 are eligible to attend the camp; however, the child should feel comfortable being left at the day camp without a parent or guardian. The child with diabetes is welcome to bring one guest. The guest may be a sibling or friend.
The purpose of this camp is to encourage diabetic children to become more independent. Campers will have the opportunity to take part in both recreational activities and diabetes education.
