Dose of D-Camps

Bringing the D-Camps Experience Home

Due to COVID-19 in-person D-Camps were cancelled, but the connection to others living with T1D was not. Diabetes Canada launched Dose of D-Camps, a free 5- week Virtual Camp bringing the power of D-Camps into homes throughout Alberta & Northwest Territories.

In 2021, we are excited to expand Dose of D-Camps by creating a variety of digital programming options for children, youth, and families living with type 1 to stay connected throughout the year. Campers will create memories, learn new skills, make friends, connect with peers, and so much more while keeping our campers safe during physical distancing required due to COVID-19.

The need to support families and kids with type 1 diabetes is more important than ever. With our virtual programs, spots are unlimited. We welcome every camper that wants to join us. With supporters like you by our side, we will provide children, youth, and families with a sense of belonging and community throughout the year with a Dose of D-Camps.
