Camps for children and teenagers with diabetes type 1
Health professionals are encouraged to get involved and volunteer their time for Diabetes camp. Diabetes camp is a great way for children and teenagers to meet their peers with diabetes in a safe and relaxed environment.
Camp provides a balance between fun activities and learning skills to help manage diabetes.
All children with diabetes are encouraged to attend at least one diabetes camp. This will provide reassurance for both child and parent in preparation for attending school camps. The child or teenager does not have to manage all of their care to attend camp, as the camps are fully supervised by qualified health professionals who will assist them with their diabetes management.
Contact Diabetes NSW for local information on camps and how you can become a volunteer.
