Great for the whole family!
May 13, 2017
Camp Leo’s first ever Family Camp in 2016 was a camping experience filled with fun activities and diabetes education for the entire family! Family Camp is a great way to connect with diabetes professionals and other families going through similar situations and obtain the resources and support needed to live an empowered and healthy life with Type 1 Diabetes.
Family camp is staffed by volunteers, most of whom have Type 1 Diabetes or a close connection to it. Counselors will ensure that kids are safe and have a great time while adults attend the various speakers and breakout sessions. Licensed and trained medical staff will provide diabetes supervision when kids are away from their parents. Children are with their families for all meals, snacks, family free time, and entertainment.
Who Can Attend?
Any family with a child who has Type 1 Diabetes in grade 8 and younger. This includes parents, siblings, and extended family. At least one adult must be present per family.
What are the activities?
Activities will include speakers, educational workshops, and breakout sessions for adults, while children will enjoy a range of fun games and activities. Shared activities will include meals, free time, and evening entertainment.
Family Camp Fee
- $32 per adult
- $23 per child
Camp Leo has never turned a family away from camp for financial reasons. We strongly encourage you to apply for a scholarship if you feel your family could benefit from financial assistance. Partial and full scholarships are awarded based on financial need, which is calculated by family size and adjusted gross family income compared to federal poverty guidelines.
