Camp Information

Camp STIX is an independent, community-based, summer camp located in Northeastern Washington for children and teens with diabetes throughout the Northwest. The camp is held at Riverview Bible Camp on the Pend Oreille River near Cusick, Washington. Camp STIX offers a one-week program for youth ages 9-18. See you there!

Camp STIX is based on four fundamentals for success:
Support
Campers at Camp STIX will receive the necessary resources to mentally and physically overcome the everyday challenges of having diabetes.
Tradition
Camp STIX offers all that traditional summer camps offer, plus a whole lot more!  Games such as Capture the Flag, Message to Garcia, A.W.O.L., Counselors Ghost, and activities like arts and crafts, canoeing, swimming, and an exciting campfire are all part of the tradition of Camp STIX.
Information
Campers will receive optimum diabetes care from local physicians and other health care providers including physician assistants nurses, diabetes educators, and dietitians. Campers will have the tools and resources to successfully manage their diabetes while at camp by balancing their activity level with their food and insulin intake.
X-citement
Camp STIX will never offer a dull moment to children with diabetes.  Our summer camp has a ton of activities which will give kids a terrific week of friendship and fun that they will never forget.

Our Volunteers

41 kitchen volunteer members make and serve healthy food. We have nutrition experts and cheerful kitchen helpers who plan menus, prepare the food, measure carbs and keep campers well fed.
92 program and support volunteers including Camp Director, Medical Director, Education Director, Program Directors, Crafts Directors, Director Assistants, Photographers, Lead Counselors, Counselors, and Junior Counselors who provide the fun activities and loving care to our campers.
15 Board Directors who work all year for camp.
