We are hiring our Summer Team Now !

  • Sandy Beach Spring Fling
    May 23, 2018
    4:30 pm - 8:30 pm

I Challenge Diabetes and C-PaK are teaming up again to deliver a great evening of fun, mentoring as we connect, challenge and explore Sandy Beach Park in Calgary’s SW. Eat, play and be merry with peers who understand.

We’ll have a potluck style dinner and ICD will be showing off some of it’s back country kitchen skills to inspire you in your summer camping. Join us and experience what our outdoor programs have to offer the T1D community with fun games for the whole family and an opportunity to ask our elite wilderness team anything you want. No experience required. Come rain or shine!

What: After some introductions we will get right into a couple of engaging activities. We are asking YOU to consider something to bring for food but will also have a little taste test of our back-country kitchen. That means you get to see the type of food we cook when we are leading groups with type 1 through the wilderness without power and carrying all our gear through to see the most spectacular views the world has to offer. We’ll test our blood sugars together, carb count it up, bolus and enjoy a group dinner. We’ll have a bit more fun and then wrap up with some s’mores grilled over the bbq. Timing can be flexible for and any dietary restrictions with expertise in gluten free cooking!

Our ICD team in Alberta has ventured off into the Rockies and crossed back and forth over the BC Alberta border, beautiful rivers and through mountain passes many times over. But each time creates a powerful memory to motivate long after the hike is finished.

When: May 23rd 2nd, 2018 4:30 pm-8:30pm
We will be eating at 6:00 so for parents with younger children or other activities can plan your schedule, we just ask you to let us know when to expect you!
