American Diabetes Association and Seattle Children's Hospital are organizing their Diabetes Camp - ADA Camp Sealth- this summer.  It will be held from Monday August 3rd  to Saturday August 8th at Camp Sealth on Vashon Island. We are specifically looking for nurses from August 3rd to August 5th.  We need volunteers to help the kids check their blood sugars and make sure they get their insulin appropriately.   You would also have the opportunity to spend time with the campers during their activities (hiking, boating, swimming, arts & crafts, archery, etc.) to be available for them if their blood sugar gets too high or too low.  We will train you on the skills that are necessary for camp!  We do ask for at least a 3 day commitment, during which you will spend the night at Camp Sealth.  Luckily, Sealth provides sleeping quarters and food for our volunteers!  So, if you love summer camp and want to re-experience it or enjoy it for the first time, please email Karlie Hailstone (khailstone@diabetes.org) for more information!!!
