Support Victorians children living with type 1 diabetes to attend a camp and experience independence through adventure. Camps are an opportunity to learn about managing diabetes in a non-clinical environment and they give kids the opportunity to meet other children and teens living with diabetes.
“Before the camps, the boys weren’t interested in thinking about their medication, but then they got to see all the other kids and learn about managing their insulin themselves. They were more motivated to take on the responsibility”, explains a mother. Every year, many children apply and miss out on attending camp because of the limited number of places available.
Your gift can contribute to the Diabetes Kids Camps program.
