For nearly 70 years, Diabetes Canada has provided children living with type 1 diabetes the opportunity to enjoy authentic camp experiences.

While at camp, children learn about diabetes management in an enriching, safe and fun environment with all of their diabetes needs monitored by a dedicated team of trained medical professionals. At camp, diabetes education is experiential; meaning that learning about how to better manage diabetes happens through doing. These experiences result in “ah – ha!” moments and “diabetes milestones.” When children leave camp, they will have also gained a new level of independence in managing their diabetes and feel empowered to continue the healthy practices they learned at camp. In fact, many of our camp alumni recall that camp was the first time they administrated their own insulin or handled their own pump site insertion – a major accomplishment in the life of a child living with diabetes!
