Camp Carefree

Rufus and Ruby visited Camp Carefree, sharing the joys of camp with everyone who attended. Here are their journal entries.

Today Ruby #2 came to stay with me at Camp Carefree. She was one of the cutest learning tools I have ever seen. When I was younger, it would have been a real treat to have Ruby to help me do injections and finger pricking. Even as a 19 year old, Ruby is adorable. Thanks for letting me take her for the night. We had an early evening after unpacking in my new cabin! Thanks!

Ruby spent our last day preparing for the arrival of our Silver Birches. We had Ruby out with us as we decorated the campers' beds and set up testing stations. It was fun having Ruby in the cabin today but we're not half as excited as the campers will be to see her later on during camp. Having Ruby back will be a great treat for the girls and we can't wait until they get the chance to write their own journal!

We took Ruby Bass Fishing! She had a great time! Casting, reeling in, hooking worms (eww! she didn't like that part). But, here favorite part was spending some time with the Silver Birches! Ruby means a lot to us, and we love what she or adults with diabetes can do ANYTHING!!! (Including go to outerspace!)

Ruby got to stay the night with the Whispering Pines! She met some other friends (stuffed animal friends). We shared our snack with her. Shave got to hang out with all the Pines and talk. Ruby learned how to hula-hoop. She had a really fun time and we hope to see her around Camp Carefree! We love Ruby!
