Camp Victory is a FREE camp for children between 6 and 14 in Louisiana with either Type 1 or Type 2 diabetes located at the Louisiana Lions Camp near Leesville, LA.

Providing the youth of Louisiana a safe and rewarding camping experience has been a major focus of the American Diabetes Association since its beginning. Each summer over 75 physicians, nurses, dietitians, pharmacists and social workers volunteer their time to see that the medical needs of the children are met.

Our campers are educated daily about diabetes in many ways. In addition to the fun educational games they play with our dietitian interns, they will also experience many “informal teaching moments,” a sort of learning without knowing it. These moments occur many times throughout the day, whether it be carbohydrate counting, drawing up and injecting insulin or learning about site rotation.

Campers enjoy the 170 acres of rolling piney woodlands that sit on the edge of Lake Vernon. This facility includes bunk houses, cabins, kitchen-dining hall, infirmary, multi-purpose building, arts and crafts building, swimming pool, gymnasium, boat dock, archery hut and much more. Activities at Camp are geared to all ages. The younger children will enjoy swimming, art and crafts, archery, playground equipment, fishing, nature, dances and an awards ceremony. The program for the teens will include swimming, canoeing, paddle boats, nature, dances, skits, archery, volleyball and an awards ceremony. All activities are supervised by qualified staff.

Applications are available online on Camp Victory’s website (www.diabetes.org/adacampvictory) and paper applications available by calling the American Diabetes Association office – 504-889-0278 ext. 6074. Contact: Treva Lincoln
