Camp Sweet Life 2023


Covid-19 Testing Protocol for Camp (updated July 8th, 2023)

The American Diabetes Association (ADA) in agreement with the Center for Disease Control (CDC)  are no longer requiring COVID vaccines for the 2023 season.  They still highly recommend that everyone is vaccinated but it is no longer required.

In an effort to continue following ADA requirements, yet to also continue to protect all campers while still providing equal access to camp this year, Camp Sweet Life will be conducting temperature checks upon entrance to camp. We reserve the right to conduct a Covid test if deemed appropriate.

If you test positive for Covid in the days leading up to camp, please be sure to follow the guidelines put forth by the Center for Disease Control (CDC).

Dr. Jenny Kyllo, MD
Medical Director
Endocrine Clinic and McNeely Diabetes Center
Children’s Hospitals and Clinics of Minnesota

I’m a native of Rochester, MN, did my undergraduate studies at St Olaf College. I went to medical school at the University of Minnesota and did my Pediatric and Pediatric Endocrinology training at the University of Iowa. Our family moved back to Minnesota in 1996, and I have been at Children’s Hospitals and Clinics of Minnesota since. At Children’s, we’re proud to be the biggest clinic in the area providing diabetes care and the best of new technology to kids. Outside of work, I like outdoor activities; camping, hiking, skiing, fishing, and pretty much anything that gets me out in the woods. I have a lot of good stories to tell about YMCA camping experiences as a kid and teen.  If the weather is bad, I will get my sewing machine out and work on a quilt or two.  My husband, Dan, and I have 4 wonderful children and four grandchildren that keep us busy, as well.
