D-Camps is going Digital!

D-Camps is proud to present new ways to stay connected this summer and throughout the year with the D-Camps and type 1 diabetes community. More than ever, young people and their families affected by type 1 diabetes need a sense of community. A place to gather and share their experiences, hope and knowledge with one another. 

D-Camps strive to foster lifelong connections and provide exceptional programs for families living with type 1 diabetes. It is a chance to connect virtually with fellow campers and staff and be reminded of the supportive community of peers and role models living with type 1 diabetes, along with a healthy dose of fun

What do our digital campers say?

A HUGE thank you for putting the virtual camps together. We were so happy to give Ella a chance to interact with the leaders and other T1D registrants.

The instructors are terrific and did a great job of engaging the children. Thank you again, we are so grateful for your time and creativity. See you online!

I was SO EXCITED to log on every day and try a different activity every day. While it is not the same as being at camp, I had so much fun.

Francine, Digital Camper

Having a little piece of camp to look forward to every day has been HUGE! Well done D-Camps!

I’m so excited to return to camp next year but it was awesome to even have a ‘dose of d-camp’ this year.” 

Chris Callaghan, Digital Camper

Not going to camp this summer has been hard on everyone and I am really grateful for the opportunity the LDP online program has provided me with. It still gave me that camp experience that I love so much.

Hayley Ford, Digital Camp Leader

She was able to connect with fellow campers as well as some of her favourite staff – THANK YOU FOR MAKING THAT POSSIBLE!

David, Rhianne's Dad

Loved every minute of the program and got to learn a lot about the leadership styles and ideas of others, but also how I can keep growing as a leader.

Tyler, D-Camps Leadership Trainee

We were super excited to get word that D-Camp was going virtual. She was motivated and looked forward to logging on daily to her Zoom sessions.
