History of Adventure Camp

The story of how we came to be.

Adventure Camp has been a vision for Camp Stix Programs for many years. There has always been a need for a camp tailored to young diabetic adults transitioning into a more independent way of life. Growing up with diabetes with the support of your family and friends is very different than managing diabetes independently. The goal of Adventure Camp is to provide young diabetic adults a resource to gather tips, tricks, and tools to manage their diabetes and handle the unique challenges that arise during these transitional years.

2019 is the inaugural year for Adventure Camp. A team of 7 Medical/Program Staff will be counseling/guiding a crew of 24 young diabetic men and women on an adventure in West Glacier, Montana.

Camp Stix wouldn’t be Camp if there wasn’t a fireplace to share stories, songs, and memories with other fellow diabetics.

Many beautiful sights and adventures are home to West Glacier Montana. Waterfalls, such as Kootenai falls, is one such example.
