Internship opportunity at a Diabetes Camp for kids

Keystone Diabetic Kids Camp (KDKC) is a camp where children with type 1 diabetes between the ages ages 8 – 15 can come to have fun, meet other kids with diabetes and experience camp. KDKC will be held at the Camp Victory facility, located in central Pennsylvania from June 21 – 26, 2015. Throughout the week campers work closely with counselors, clinicians and dietetic interns to learn more about their diabetes and diabetes management in a casual, non-clinical environment while they participate in all the activities Camp Victory has to
offer.

KDKC is looking to employ volunteers as Dietetic Interns from June 20-26, 2014. There will be a 1 day training on June 20, 2015. We ask that the volunteers have an interest in getting nutrition experience by working with  children who have been diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes. They would be responsible for creating a nutrition education lesson for the age group they are assigned to, determining the carbohydrate count for meals and snacks, helping the campers to count their carbohydrates during the meal times, and help during the day at various activities.

Students who are interested in having this experience should fill out the  KDKC2015 application and email it to nutritionatkdkc@gmail.com no later than March 27, 2015.

Thank you,
Alexis Newman RD, LDN
Director of Nutrition for KDKC
