Diabetes SA Kids Camp

The Kids Camp is dedicated to providing experiences for children aged between 10 and 12 years with diabetes. We are committed to fostering their transition toward independence by integrating the management of diabetes with social and life skills. The children have the opportunity to participate in activities such as swimming, low rope courses, challenge courses, and flying fox just to name a few!

Insulin Pump Information

Insulin pumps are an increasingly popular insulin delivery method used in the management of type 1 diabetes. The insulin pump is a small electronic device (a little bit bigger than a pager) that has the ability to continuously deliver insulin, through a needle which is inserted under the skin attached to a line which is connected to the insulin pump; the needle and line can stay in place for up to three days. Insulin pumps are worn 24 hours a day, but can be detached as required for swimming, showering and other activities.
