Alumni

"To be able to be at camp and learn in a caring environment and to share the challenges of living with diabetes with a friend is the gift of a lifetime."

Whether you're a Clara Barton Camp alumna or a Camp Joslin alumnus, you'll always have a camp to call your own at The Barton Center.  No matter how young or old you are or how far away you live, we're here for YOU!  Former campers and staff return to The Barton Center each year for alumni events, to serve as a volunteer for weekend and summer programs, and to help raise campership funds. Barton alumni keep Clara Barton Camp and Camp Joslin in their hearts all year round and are committed to "giving back" and ensuring that campers today, receive the same benefits as they did.  Please  Stay In Touch so we can keep you connected with your friends and keep you informed of everything Barton!
