Diabetes Canada has been operating camps for children living with type 1 diabetes since it first opened its doors in 1953. Today, we offer camp programs for kids and youth across nine provinces, as well as an ambassador program for youth and young adults with diabetes who want to share their experiences.

Youth in Action

If you are aged 14 to 29 and living with diabetes, volunteer as an ambassador to help educate community groups, organizations and educational institutions in your community!

Sara & Sophie need your help.

Sara has lived with diabetes since she was ten and in 2016, her worst nightmare came true: her daughter Sophie was diagnosed with diabetes. This meant endless needles, blood sugar checks and constant worry. More than anything, Sara wants to End Diabetes so that Sophie can live to see a cure.

Alone, we won’t accomplish much. But together, we could give Sophie and millions of others a cure.

Your support today can help fund a cure and END DIABETES NOW.
