Therapeutic education is central to the management of diabetes, especially in children and
adolescents. Camps represent an ideal environment for education. During camps, the campers
receive both theoretical and practical information intended to improve their understanding
and self-management of diabetes. The metabolic impact of diabetes camp is little known among
children and adolescents living with type 1 diabetes in sub-Saharan Africa. The aimed of this
study was to assess the changes in glycemic control and insulin doses in a group of children
and adolescents living with type 1 diabetes in Cameroon during and after camp.
