The Barton Center for Diabetes Education, Inc.
Former SCI AmeriCorps member and Diabetic, Ashley Napear, who served at the Boys and Girls Club of Woburn is now working for the Barton Center for Diabetes Education, Inc. which is dedicated to children who live with insulin-dependent diabetes and the people who care for them.
Barton programs offer fun, recreation, diabetes education, and support. Programs include Clara Barton resident camp for girls ages 6-16 in North Oxford, MA; Camp Joslin resident camp for boys ages 6-16 in Charlton, MA; coed Adventure Programs for ages 13-18; Family Programs; coed Day Camps for ages 3-15 in Connecticut, Massachusetts, and New York, and year-round programs. The year-round programs start in mid October and run once a month for various age groups. Some programs allow the child to bring a friend without diabetes or family members depending on the program.

What Campers love about Camp:
"CBC has given me support with my diabetes and granted me lifelong friendships. I look forward to camp all year because it is so special". Clara Barton Camp CIT
"For many kids as well as me, Camp Joslin is a getaway. A place to get away from their day to day life and enjoy being a person that has diabetes. A place to learn more about yourself and how to manage your diabetes better while having fun doing so". Camp Joslin CIT
