American Diabetes Association Camp Aurora presented by Cook Children’s is in need of the services of any and all superheroes! From June 22nd-June 26th, YMCA Camp Carter in Fort Worth will be the home base for the Justice League. Campers will now need to be at least 6 years old and no older than 12 years. Due to space limitations we can only accept a total of 115 campers to include 15 sibling campers, on a first come, first serve basis. There will be a waiting list in case a superhero gets called into duty and can’t make it. We will be continuing our CIT program and we have 20 spots for teen patients with diabetes and siblings. CITs must meet the following criteria: A1C less than 10 to be interviewed and an A1C from 9-10 will require approval from your doctor. Register online atwww.diabetes.org/adacampaurora
