Kiki's Kids Camp
Kiki's Kids Camp is a four-day summer camp for youth between the ages of 6 - 12 who have been diagnosed with type 1 diabetes. Campers enjoy activities such as swimming, sports and crafts while learning about nutrition, diabetes management, independence and self-discipline from trained clinicians and volunteers. Teens ages 13 - 17 who have been diagnosed with type 1 diabetes can attend as junior counselors/counselors-in-training.
Kiki's Kids is funded by planned gift from the estate of the late Angelique (Kiki) Petropole, a Rome pediatric nurse who had diabetes. The gift continues to fund the camp and the purchase of diabetes supplies for children in need.
