Program staff will plan and facilitate age-appropriate games and activities for the children at camp. Some of these activities might include: climbing wall, various sports, boating, horses, arts and crafts, and many more.
These program staff will be made up of the facility staff and D-Camps staff. Some of our staff team live with type 1 diabetes which creates endless opportunities for your child to learn from and relate to a young adult role model living with diabetes. They will also be available to assist campers with testing and treating lows.
Adults, parents and caregivers will have the opportunity to meet and connect with each other in various sessions throughout the weekend. These sessions, which include discussion groups and team-building activities, are often led by adults living with type 1 diabetes, the medical team and leaders from the type 1 diabetes community. These sessions are often seen as the highlight of the weekend. They provide opportunities for caregivers to discuss life with type 1 diabetes in a caring and supportive environment with an understanding group of peers.
There will be a number of all-camp programs planned throughout the weekend that the whole family can participate in together. These fun events are a great opportunity for the whole family to spend time together and feel like they are on a holiday. It might be the whole family on the high ropes course or a mother-daughter showdown at archery but no matter what, it will be a great time!
