Leadership programs

2021 program update 

The number one priority of Diabetes Canada and D-Camps continues to be the safety of all our campers, staff, volunteers, and families. Because of the continued uncertainty of the current COVID-19 pandemic in addition to the advance planning and training required for us to deliver our exceptional in person camping program, we have made the very difficult decision to focus on digital D-Camps programs in 2021.

We understand this is disappointing news. We are fully committed to providing a variety of exceptional, FREE, digital D-Camps experiences in 2021. We will continue to be in touch with our D-Camps community and provide updates as soon as they become available. Our entire D-Camps team truly can’t wait to get back to seeing everyone in person – when it is safe to do so!

Our Leadership Development Program (LDP) is designed for youth with diabetes who have an interest in developing their leadership skills. This program is the first step to becoming a D-Camps counselor—a lot of our staff have been through the program and it shows!

This program is divided into two segments (LDP 1 and LDP 2) based on age. Both segments will teach strong leadership skills through hands-on experiences, high quality coaching and guidance from trained staff, and consistent feedback.

The goal of LDP is for youth to return from camp with an increase in confidence, skills to lead a group and an increased understanding of the qualities of a good leader.
