Youth Retreat for Diabetes in Squamish, B.C.

Become a leader in your community. Join us for a dynamic leadership weekend at Camp Samac! Develop your leadership skills as you take part in challenging outdoor adventure activities. This unique program provides opportunities to connect with others, like you, with type 1 diabetes. With ICD’s expert knowledge, enthusiastic instructors, and exciting activities you are sure to walk away with a deeper understanding of your leadership potential.

Who: High School and Post Secondary Students with type 1 diabetes. Those interested in bringing a friend without T1D are welcome to apply. Our selection is not based on Olympic accomplishments or winning a governor general award, although when you meet ICD leaders with such accomplishments you will see what we are looking for. If you want to enable and inspire others to be their best and want to learn from your peers how to do it, this is the right space for you!  

What: Whether you are talking by the campfire or challenging yourself to try something new, this weekend will allow you to connect with others and build lifelong friendships. This retreat will focus on building the skills needed to become a strong leader in the diabetes community.
