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 19 and 20, from 9 a. m.
to 4 p. m. 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. This 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.

Early registration is encouraged to ensure that enough counselors and volunteers are available to help with activities. Applications will be accepted until June 5 or the camp is full. To receive an
application or more information, please call the Community Relations department at 347-1529 or visit the hospital web site at stanthonyshospital. org, and click on "Classes & Events."
