Charity Spotlight: Camp Wana Kura
A-1 Self Storage is proud to sponsor Camp Wana Kura for the 3rd straight year.
Camp Wana Kura will enter its 26th season July 28-31, 2015. The first camp was held in the summer of 1989.
The ADA is the largest provider of camps for children with diabetes in the world, and Camp Wana Kura is the only ADA-funded camp in California for children with type 1 diabetes. Camp Wana Kura is a 4-day camp held annually in July at the Santee Lakes Recreation Preserve for children with type 1 diabetes between the ages of 5 and 12 years old and teens between the ages of 13 and 17. In 2015, there is projected to be 150 campers and 75 teen aids.
At Camp, the campers learn how to self-manage their diabetes and share a traditional camp experience with their peers by learning nutrition habits, including healthy eating and safe medical practices. Camp Wana Kura gives children with diabetes the opportunity to live life just like those around them. The staff create an environment where children can easily make friends and have an opportunity to positively talk about their diabetes.
