Register to Attend Camp TWIGS 2017

Registration for campers and volunteers is now closed, but if you would like to get in touch for next year or have any questions please email camptwigs@campstix.org

Camp STIX 2017 will be held from Friday, August 4th to Sunday August 6th, 2017 at Dart-Lo Day Camp

TWIGS (Together We Inspire Greatness & Support) is a new summer camp for children ages 6-8 years old who've been diagnosed with Type I Diabetes.  It is the only day camp of it's kind in the Inland Northwest and 2017 marks our 2nd consecutive year.  Our inaugural 2016 camp was an overwhelming success and we're excited to continue to build and grow over the coming years! 

Located in Spokane, WA, Camp TWIGS offers quality diabetes education and support to campers and parents within the local diabetes community.  Due to their age, many of our campers are newly diagnosed and we place a great emphasis on welcoming these families to our local T1D network.

The best news is that we have a new location to call home! We've recently partnered with Camp Fire Inland Northwest to utilize their Camp Dart-Lo facility and couldn't be more excited! Dart-Lo is located in North Spokane (on the Little Spokane River) and features two swimming pools, archery, ropes courses and a climbing wall. We will truly have a "camp" feel for these awesome little campers!

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:


Campers at Camp STIX will receive the necessary resources to mentally and physically overcome the everyday challenges of having diabetes.

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 part of the tradition of Camp STIX.

Campers will receive optimum diabetes care from local physicians and other health care providers, and also from diabetes educators and dieticians. 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.


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.
