Overview: After the success of our 2017 and 2018 partnership with York University Lions Camps, which offered youth with T1D, siblings and friends a top-notch sports camp, I Challenge Diabetes is excited to announce our expansion to Niagara with our Winter Sports Camp 2019 @ Brock University!
This camp is a multi-sport day camp at Brock University that will provide diabetes support, education, mentoring and normalization, integrated with awesome workouts, skill development and a whole lot of summer camp fun for all ability levels. We combine the excellence of Brock’s Sports Camps with the awesomeness of ICD programs to make this day camp AMAZING!
Your child can expect to participate in activities like swimming, kinball, volleyball, racquet sports, basketball, rowing, archery, fencing, and outdoor field games as weather permits.
Who: The camp is open to children with and without type 1 diabetes aged 6-7 years, 8-10 years, and 11-12 years of age each week. Youth aged 13-15 years participate in our integrated leadership development camp. The camp is divided up by age category in an inclusive framework to allow T1Ds to participate alongside their peers.
When: Camp runs for three days from 9am – 4pm each day. Before and after care runs from 7:30am – 5:30pm at an additional cost.
- Day 1 January 2
- Day 2 January 3
- Day 3 January 4
Where: Brock University, 1812 Sir Isaac Brock Way, St. Catharines L2S 3A1
Cost: $40 per day. Before and after care is an additional $8/day per day.
Please note, lunch and snacks are not provided. Diabetic low supplies will always be on hand.
Diabetes Empowerment: We will connect with parents/caregivers at the start and end of each day to capture any directions from parents for the day and follow through with a flexible support plan. Any issues would be taken on by our team onsite. We track all tests, snacks and insulin on our log sheets, integrated with activities to provide a daily print out with pointers for potential adjustments, where needed. We are flexible with your needs and can build that confidence over the course of our programs.
From a 2018 participant:
“I would first like to thank you so much for such an amazing camp!! My son had a great experience and met some new TD1 friends whom he still keeps in touch with.
The camp was great in that he was kept active all day and he looked forward to going every morning (which is no easy feat during summer vacay). Having the different spokespeople talking about diabetes to the campers also had him coming home and talking about his day and what he learned.
I loved it too!! As a parent of a child with T1D leaving your child with anyone for a length of time by themselves is very worrisome, but by day 2 I was so excited that I could leave Junior and not worry about him being taken care of properly. The multiple checks throughout the day kept his blood sugar in check. Thank you ICD for a fantastic experience!!”
