D-Camps

See you in 2022!

Thank you for your support throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. It has been tough on everyone and changed a lot of what we were used to and loved, including our Diabetes Canada D-Camps programs.

Like many organizations, we had to pivot, and we’re glad you came along for the ride. Our A Dose of D-Camps digital program was a great success. Because of you, children living with type 1 diabetes and their families found a way to connect and maintain a sense of community in these uncertain times.

We are thrilled to share the news that D-Camps will return to in-person camps in 2022, while also offering some digital programs.

After two summers away from D-Camps, some campers and participants may be wondering which program they’re eligible for. Don’t worry. We’ve got you. In 2022, it’s all about being flexible. This means you can choose the program that works best for you, especially if it’s one that includes friends you made when you last attended camp. Once you’ve considered your options for 2022, feel free to reach out to the D-Camps team at camps@diabetes.ca with any questions. And we’ll continue to be in touch as we prepare for the year ahead.

COVID-19 Vaccination Policy for D-Camps Programs

Diabetes Canada’s D-Camps requires that staff, volunteers and all D-Camps participants’ eligible (aged 5+) for the COVID-19 vaccine be fully vaccinated prior to their arrival at D-Camps for in-person programming. For D-Camps, fully vaccinated means two doses of a Health Canada approved vaccine.

Diabetes Canada’s vaccination policy is based on the recommendations of D-Camps’ National Medical Task Force as one measure to protect against the spread of COVID-19. Participants will be asked to use their province’s verification systems as the means for demonstrating proof of vaccination. The D-Camps Medical Task Force is comprised of 11 individuals from across the country from a variety of health-care professions, including pediatric endocrinologists, ER physicians, registered nurses and certified diabetes educators.

D-Camps will accommodate all individuals who are entitled to vaccination exemptions. Thank you for your support in protecting the health and safety of our campers, families, employees, and community.

More information about registration can be found here.

About Camp

Diabetes Canada’s camping tradition began in 1953 in Eastern Ontario. Since that time, our camp program has grown extensively and the organization currently operates nine overnight camp programs across Canada plus numerous year round programs.
