August’s diabetes camp goes virtual for kids, adults and families

10% discount off registration fee – Cost is $295 for individual, $395 for the family before discount.

I never had the opportunity to go to diabetes camp since I got type 1 at the age of 18. But I always wish I had. When I started interviewing people with diabetes years ago, young people said to me it was one of the best things that ever happened to them. They made some of their best and expected to be lifelong, friends there.

So if you’re looking for a d-camp for your child this summer, or you want to attend as an adult with T1D or a family, look to ‘V Camp’ offered by the Diabetes Training Camp Foundation. And if you indicate you read about it here, you’ll get a 10% discount off the registration fee!

V Camp runs from Thursday evening, August 13th to Sunday afternoon, the 16th. Each day offers online back to back lectures, small group sessions and fitness opportunities. You can attend whatever you like and every single session.

There will be a program specifically for teens and parents on topics such as sex, drugs, transitioning from home to college, communication and more, and here’s the schedule that was sent to me:
