Camp for me 2013

Hi,it's me Gwyneth, and I just got back from diabetic camp a few days ago. It was so  much fun! I went to session 1 at Camp Conrad Chinnock. At camp you get to do things like: camp fire, archery, shooting range, arts and crafts, rock wall, hiking, and so much more! It's just like a normal camp but you don't have to explain what diabetes is to anyone, it's a place to have friends that won't ask if the shots you take hurt. It's a place to feel normal. When I feel alone, or like no one knows what I am going through I think of camp and how everyone feels what I feel one time or another.  If I had not gone to camp I would not be as confident with diabetes as I am today. I hope that every type 1 diabetic gets to have the magical experience at camp like I did!
