Team Diabetes is hosting an epic weekend of activities in support of D-Camps!

This unique experience will bring participants to Honolulu, Hawaii.

Something for everyone!

Hike, walk or run… it’s up to you!!!

Why your support is so important

D-Camps is a unique program offered exclusively by Diabetes Canada.  At D-Camps, campers get a break from being different. Camp is one of the few places where everyone just “gets it,” where the world runs on “diabetes time” and nothing has to be explained. Campers will meet other children who share a personal understanding of the challenges that come from living with diabetes, and many of these relationships develop into lifelong friendships. When children leave camp, they will have gained a new level of independence in managing their diabetes and feel empowered to continue the healthy practices they learned at camp.
